Celebration offers more than just tea and support

Rob George 13th May, 2019

MUMS in Evesham and Pershore were among thousands across the country taking part in a nationwide celebration of breastfeeding.

The Vale’s branches of Coffee#1 took part in the Big Breastfeeding Café event which aims to inspire, empower and provide support to those who wish to, or are already breastfeeding.

Now in its fourth year, the project led by breastfeeding brand Medela, saw thousands of mums connect via a network of mini events last Wednesday (May 1).

Bringing parents together, the cafes provide a space for mums to share their experiences of breastfeeding, the challenges, rewards and first-hand advice over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

Sioned Hilton, Medela UK’s education manager said: “We are finding time and time again personal advice from mums who have breastfed themselves is invaluable.

“We know breastfeeding can be challenging, but we also know a problem shared, is often a problem halved.

“Ensuring all breastfeeding mums have a reassuring and supportive network is vital.”
