Statistics show that women are more likely to continue on with their breastfeeding journey if they have support from other breastfeeding mums.
For years, myself (Siaba Tumoe, founder of Boo.b ) and Maria Betworth (a breastfeeding specialist), have been providing breastfeeding mothers with practical and moral support via our social media platforms. Now we are pleased to be able to do so via our Breastfeeding Cafe.
We are taking breastfeeding support out of a clinical setting and cold church halls and bringing it to you in a beautiful, relaxed and social environment. So mothers get the professional breastfeeding advice they seek along side socialising and connecting with the wider breastfeeding community.
I breastfed my own son for 13 months so I know exactly how important decent professional breastfeeding and moral support is during your breastfeeding journey. Maria Betworth is currently 2 years into breastfeeding her second child and pumped exclusively for one year for her first child. She can be found giving breastfeeding support daily on Instagram (@littlepeachlondon) and she supports new mothers at NHS breastfeeding groups too. As Londoners the one thing we both noticed during our breastfeeding journey’s is that MORE breastfeeding support is needed here in the UK. It is also the feedback we have gotten from our combined 30,000+ social media following of breastfeeding mothers all over the UK.
Come along to the cafe/social even if you are pregnant and thinking of breastfeeding, a newbie or well established breastfeeder.
