A new breastfeeding support group has opened in Fauldhouse Partnership Centre.
Maggie Law and Haylee Hibbert started the group in Fauldhouse Partnership Centre after the successfully completed a course to offer support for local women who are breastfeeding.
With input from the Infant Feeding and Health Visiting teams the Maggie and Haylee now aim to provide support on a weekly basis in Fauldhouse Partnership Centre.
The new group meets from 1.30pm to 2.30pm on a Monday and all mums who need support with feeding or just fancy a chat and the opportunity to see what’s available are welcome.
Health visitor, Sharron McCourtney said:“We are delighted to be able to have a support group here for the women of Fauldhouse and Breich Valley. Lack of skilled support is one of the main reasons mums give up feeding having local mums who are specially trained is a great boost to our service.”
