Ronnie Bray, Breastfeeding Advisor for Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care NHS Trust said: “We are delighted to re-launch the Paignton support group and hope to encourage as many breastfeeding parents and mums-to-be as possible to drop by.
“We know that being a new or expectant mum can be a busy time, and there is often a lot of new information and advice that parents will need to get to grasp with. With professionals on hand, it means that people can stop for a quick chat and have any of their questions answered.
“Supporting mothers to breastfeed is so important because the health benefits for mothers and babies are well evidenced. It helps protect the baby from Sudden Infant Death, health problems such as ear, chest and urine infections, eczema, obesity and asthma and it reduces mums' chances of getting certain diseases later in life, including ovarian and breast cancer, as well as weak bones.
“Additionally, one of the most frequent advantages quoted by mothers is the special bond they feel when breastfeeding and weight loss from burning up calories breastfeeding.
“Besides some of the most obvious advantages to breastfeeding, breast milk is convenient and free. It is always ready, always the right temperature and there are no bottles to clear or formula to carry, measure and mix, making life much easier for new mums.”
Support groups take place across South Devon. For further information please speak to your Midwife, Health Visitor or contact Rebecca Garside, Infant Feeding Specialist Midwife, on 01803 654644. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org
