Scottish Breastfeeding Awareness Week

Special events taking place for nursing and expectant Mum's

Breastfeeding week 2018

18th - 22nd June is Scottish Breastfeeding Awareness Week and we are hosting some special events to support Mums who are choosing to breastfeed.

UK legislation protects a mother's right to breastfeed her child in any place that the child is allowed to be, without interruption or intrusion.  We welcome breastfeeding in all our buildings, places and spaces.

These informal events will offer advice from trained peer support workers, the chance to meet other Mums and to enjoy a cuppa:

  • Monday 18th June, 9:30-11:30, Barrhead Health and Care Centre
  • Wednesday 21st June, 1:30-3:00, Eastwood Health and Care Centre - At this event you can also try a taster session of baby massage & Bookbug and take part in craft activities.
  • Thursday 22nd June, 1:30-3:30,The Auchenback Resource Centre - At this event you can also take part in craft, baby massage and Bookbug activities and try out the soft play equipment on site.

You can get more information about locally available antenatal and postnatal support from the Health Improvement Team. Contact them on 0141 451 0757 or HITeam@eastrenfreshire.gov.uk for more information.
