of Breastfeeding Community:
I have been reading research on
both breastfeeding and peer support for a nearly five years now. It is
obvious that across the UK, there are wide variances in both the levels of
support women receive and the quality of information provided to new
Recently, Stella has been
featured in various national newspapers and TV shows, advocating the
normality of breastfeeding older children.
As I said to someone just the
other day, I want to support breastfeeding, but am not about to re-invent
the wheel and there are enough good breastfeeding support organisations
(ABM, BfN, LLL, NCT & others) out there already. We see the role of
Breastfeeding Community as raising awareness and helping to make sure the
smaller organisations and the groups stay out there!
