Breastfeeding message is put high on agenda
HUNDREDS of balloons were released by Ashford Sure Start last week to promote the benefits of breastfeeding. The event was held to mark a national Breastfeeding Awareness Week and it took place at the Baptist church in Brookfield Road. A picnic and other activities were also held for the families who attended the event. The National Childbirth Trust is working closely with Sure Start to help more mothers in east Kent learn about the benefits of breastfeeding. Experienced mothers are being trained as counsellors to offer support and advice to new mothers who want to breastfeed their babies. Call 0870 444 8709 or visit www.nct.org.uk for more advice on breastfeeding.
