So if you are considering breast feeding or have any worries, it’s a great time to address your questions.
Run by the Department of Health, National Breastfeeding Week is used as a key event for promoting breastfeeding, raising awareness, increasing social acceptance and promoting the support surrounding it.
The aim this year focuses on getting women to reconise their right to breastfeed at any time in any place, as well as getting family, friends and healthcare professionals to provide support for breastfeeding.
