The Braemar Charitable Trust was delighted to be able to assist the Waikato Family Centre who for over 21 years, have provided professional, free, nursing based and integrated family health services to family/whanau with babies and toddlers, in Hamilton and the surrounding areas.
When the Waikato Family Centre approached the Braemar Charitable Trust to assist them to install a separate area and sink bench for parents and staff to manage breast milk, breast pumps, cleaning, autoclaving and storage of breast milk, we were happy to help.

Having this separate area "will also assist the Waikato Family Centre to achieve it's aim to meet the World Health Organisation code as well as the DHB requirements and to support mothers to achieve their breastfeeding goals".
