Evidence increasingly shows that Māori have low breastfeeding rates. NZBA has a role within the health system to influence these outcomes. It is within this context of the Māori concept of Whai Wahitanga we offer this kete of Māori breastfeeding resources Te Whāriki for health professionals, consumers and others.
Te Whāriki is the result of collaborative work undertaken by NZBA and Te Rōpu Whakaruruhau, the Māori advisory committee and puts material in one place. It includes links to powerpoints, research articles, reflective activity sheets and other Māori resources that can enhance your work.

E ngā mana, e ngā reo, E ngā karangatanga maha tena koutou
Whakataka te hau ki te uru
Whakataka te hau ki te tonga
Kia makinakina ki uta
Kia mataratara ki tai
Kia hi ake aua te atakura
He tio he huka he hauhu
Te iwi e tau nei tenei ra
Tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa
