Let us celebrate Breastfeeding Week, from two weeks and beyond!
'World Breastfeeding Week is an annual celebration which is held every year from 1 to 7 August in more than 120 countries. According to the 26 August data of WBW website, 540 events have been held worldwide by more than 79 countries with 488 organizations and 406,620 participants for the World Breastfeeding Week 2010.'
'Breastfeeding provides every child with the best possible start in life. It delivers health, nutritional and emotional benefits to both children and mothers. And it forms part of a sustainable food system. But while breastfeeding is a natural process, it is not always easy. Mothers need support – both to get started and to sustain breastfeeding.'
I have listed together some useful resources from NHS and WBW website to provide more information and connect you with other mothers looking for support just like you.
'Got a breastfeeding question?

If you need any futher support please talk to your Midwives, health visitors and trained local volunteer mothers (peer supporters) are there to help you get breastfeeding off to a good start. They can give you lots of information and support when you need it.
Reach out and someone will be there.
