The Baby Friendly Initiative, set up by UNICEF and the World Health Organisation, is a global programme which provides a practical and effective way for health services to improve the care provided for all mothers and babies.
Presenting the award, Theresa McElhone, Lead Professional Officer for Scotland said that every mother they had interviewed could not praise NHS Forth Valley staff highly enough.
She said, "Achieving full accreditation is hard work, and represents a lot of effort over a lot of time."
