A BREASTFEEDING promotion event has been organised for Friday 2nd August 2013, by the Hedon Breastfeeding Café when the Big Latch-On is to take place at East Park in Hull. The Big Latch-On is a simultaneous breastfeeding event, when groups of nursing mothers come together at specific venues around the world and see whether a new record for breastfeeding can be set.
Those wanting to take part in the Big Latch-On should arrive at East Park (large grassed area near the main entrance) for 10am, ready to latch-on at 10:30am!
Hedon Breastfeeding Café is run by Hedon Children’s Centre in partnership with local volunteer Breastfeeding Peer Supporters. It runs every Thursday morning 11:00 am-12 noon after the child health clinic at Rosedale Community Unit Hedon.
The group is for Pregnant and Breastfeeding families and offers support and information on breastfeeding – and being a cafe, offers a range of hot drinks and cakes!
Breastfeeding supplies the only natural food specifically designed for your baby and provides a range of benefits to both baby and mother. Alison Greaves is a Community Nursery Nurse at the Hedon Children’s Centre and is very keen to promote the benefits of breastfeeding and can be contacted about this, and the Big Latch-On, at the Centre:
