Clinics promote ‘breast is best’

NEW breast feeding services for Northamptonshire mums and babies have been revealed by the NHS.

A number of services will be paid for by NHS Northamptonshire over the next 12 months with £60,000 of funds.

They include project work in an area of low breast feeding or high drop-off rates, where mums begin breast feeding and for some reason become discouraged.

There will also be three specialist feeding clinics a week for babies with complex breast feeding problems.
