A major focus of Women's Health Action is promoting breastfeeding amongst women in employment. This involves employers providing Breastfeeding Friendly Workplaces and mothers being well informed and supported.

Women's Health Action is currently creating a dedicated website for breastfeeding friendly workplaces (www.bfw.org.nz). This site will provide comprehensive information and resources for employers and employees about creating breastfeeding friendly workplaces. The Breastfeeding Friendly Workplaces website will also allow organisations to register for and become audited for Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace Certification on-line. The site will be launched this June. For more information contact Women's Health Action Trust at info@bfw.org.nz or call 09 520 5295


Women's Health Action is a charitable trust which aims to provide women with high quality information and education services to enable them to maintain their health and make informed choices about their health care.

We have a health promotion and disease prevention focus, with special interests in breastfeeding and screening. We approach health within a holistic framework of the whole of women's lives, rather than from a narrowly medical perspective.

Our vision, Well Women empowered in a healthy world, aligns with our work to ensure that issues relating to gender remain on the health agenda, thereby ensuring women's health needs are recognised, understood and met.
