Breastfeeding support programme launched across Nottinghamshire

Have your say

In order to provide the best breastfeeding support to new mothers, County Health Partnerships (part of Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust) in partnership with Sure Start have developed a Breastfeeding Peer Support volunteer programme, which is proving to be very popular with new mums and their families.

Many mothers-to-be would like to breastfeed their baby, and once their baby is born, currently 82% of new mothers are putting their baby to the breast at birth.

Breastfeeding can be trying for some, and mothers who access support, whether from their midwife or health visitor or from their partner, friends or family, find they are better able to cope with the demands that a new baby brings.
