Breastfeeding Drop-ins Funding Crisis Up Date
I attended a meeting today at Hampshire County Council with the Executive Member for Public Health together with Breastfeeding Counsellors to discuss continuing Breastfeeding support in my area. I am very pleased to report the outcome of the meeting was a positive one.
Hampshire County Council will be working with health visitors, maternity services and local breastfeeding support services to identify a sustainable future service model. To allow this to happen the current service availability will be maintained for the remainder of the financial year. It was also agreed to establish a small working group to include breastfeeding counsellors to help identify a sustainable future model of support for women to breastfeed across all of Hampshire.
