Funding Crisis for Breastfeeding Drop-Ins around Hampshire

I recently visited The Breast Feeding Support Drop in Centre held at Christ Church in Chineham. I met with qualified breastfeeding counsellors and volunteers who offer advice and support to mothers.

I spoke with mothers and fathers who highlighted the importance of the drop in Centre to give them the support they need through what can sometimes be a difficult period of adjustment for them.

It soon became very apparent to me this is a much needed and extremely valuable service for mothers and their babies. I have written to the Executive Member for Public Health at the County Council highlighting the funding crisis for the Hampshire Breastfeeding Counsellors drop in service.

In July a delegation of Mums from Chineham will be attending the Full County Council meeting to voice their concerns regarding the importance of continuing the funding for a professional qualified advice service which is necessary to support mothers and their babies.
