Nursing Bras at the Natural Nursery

Midwives and counsellors will be on hand to offer advice at drop-in sessions in Bushey and Bricket Wood as part of Breastfeeding Awareness Week in June.

Mothers and mothers-to-be can share experiences with other mums and get one-to-one support with breastfeeding counsellors.

The free sessions will be run by the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) and Baby Cafe Charitable Trust at government-run Sure Start children’s centres.

Breastfeeding Awareness Week runs from June 19, to June 25 2011, and sessions will be run at Park Street, Bricket Wood, on the Thursday morning, and at The Reddings Children’s Centre, in Bushey, on Thursday afternoon.
