Beside You - Breastfeeding In Medway

Medway Service

Provider details

Service Description:
There are so many great things about breastfeeding. It helps with bonding, provides all the nutrition your baby needs, is free and it burns 500 calories a day and much more!

Breastfeeding rates in Medway are below the national average. Some mums and babies take to breastfeeding easily, but sometimes it can be difficult at the beginning, sometimes it can be painful and it can take a little bit of time to get used to. Some people also feel awkward about feeding out and about, and over 2/3rds of mums in Medway stop breastfeeding before their baby is 6 weeks old. This means lots of mums and babies are missing out on the amazing benefits of breastfeeding.

The #BesideYou Campaign is here to show mums that we all support breastfeeding in Medway. #BesideYou can help mums find all the help and support they need, at breastfeeding groups, from peer supporters and health professionals and from friends and family. Breastfeeding isn’t just about mums. Whoever you are, you can show your support.
