New breastfeeding group for Old Catton, Spixworth and Sprowston mums

A new support group is being launched tomorrow in Old Catton, with the aim of providing expert information and advice to mothers who are breastfeeding or intending to breastfeed.

The Breastfeeding Breakfast group will be launched at St Margaret's Church Hall, in Blacksmith's Way, from 9.30am to 11am on Tuesday, November 6. Sessions will be held thereafter on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

The group has been set up by Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust's (NCH&C) health visiting team, in partnership with the Spixworth and Sprowston Children's Centre.

At the sessions, mums and mums-to-be from the Old Catton, Spixworth and Sprowston areas will be able to speak to health visitors over a cup of coffee and croissant about the benefits of breastfeeding and techniques. They will also have the chance to discuss any questions or concerns they may have and hear from other mums about their own experiences.

Meanwhile, older babies will be able to have fun in a soft play area.

Health visitor Ruth Webb said: 'At the Breastfeeding Breakfast, parents will be able to pick up advice from NCH&C's professional health visiting team, share in the experiences of other mums, and hopefully make some friends too.

'Parents at other breastfeeding groups we have set up across Norfolk tell us that they are really beneficial, so I hope lots of mums from in and around Old Catton will take the opportunity to come along to this new group.'
