Support for mom

Stratford Gazette

The Breastfeeding Buddies group held its monthly meet-up at the Stratford Early Years Centre at the Falstaff Family Centre last Thursday.

The drop-in program offers mom-to-mom support in a variety of areas, including breastfeeding.

Studies show mothers are more successful at breastfeeding and do it for longer when they have better access to local support and information.

For more information about the group, contact the Perth District Health Unit or visit the group's Facebook page.

Thursday's meeting was the kick-off for World Breastfeeding Week, which will be celebrated in the first week of October with activities.
