Hospitals

Did your maternity hospital provide any education around cloth nappies? Did they supply or allow the use of cloth nappies during your stay?

We’re collecting data to assess the use and information that is supplied throughout Australian Maternity Hospitals. Once we have a better understanding, the ANA aims to create education packages to better equip our midwives with the tools they need to grow cloth use.
