Kendal and Windermere Breastfeeding Support Groups

(Cumbria)

The funding would enable two breastfeeding support groups to meet every week for around 6 months. The groups provide a place for breastfeeding mums to meet and support each other. A Breastfeeding Counsellor would be available to give information and support with any breastfeeding-related issue. This would benefit mums and babies in the community.

Our goals:

  • To run a weekly breastfeeding support group, attended by a registered Breastfeeding Counsellor, in Kendal
  • To run a weekly breastfeeding support group, attended by a registered Breastfeeding Counsellor, in Windermere
  • To enable local mums to reach their own breastfeeding goals

How we will achieve our goals

The funding would pay for a registered Breastfeeding Counsellor to facilitate the groups, and also pay for room rent. Some of the funding would pay for information leaflets and books to provide mums with accurate information to take home with them.

Where the money will go

This project would help mums in South Lakes to reach their personal breastfeeding goals. Many mums stop breastfeeding before they want to, due to problems like pain, concern about their milk supply, or how to combine breastfeeding with returning to work. The groups enable mums to get skilled help with these issues, and support from other mums.
