Mums are being encouraged to step up their own Big Breastfeeding Café in Burnley.
Those taking part in the national initiative will receive a package of everything they need to host one on Tuesday, May 15th courtesy of brand Medela.
Medela discovered two years ago that an overwhelming 76% of mums believed that talking with other mums at support groups helped to not only reassure them, but actually support them.
Medela UK’s education manager and in-house lactation consultant, Sioned Hilton said: “The Big Breastfeeding Café continues to be a brilliant way to demonstrate the importance of mum to mum support and raise awareness of breastfeeding in society.
"We know that breastfeeding can be challenging but we also know that a problem shared, is often a problem halved. Ensuring that all breastfeeding mums have a reassuring and supportive network around them is vital which is why Medela is passionate about encouraging local, mum to mum support with its Big Breastfeeding Café.”
To sign up, mums should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
