Supporting Breastfeeding Awareness Week

Monday, May 15, 2006

Meg Munn is hoping to increase support for breastfeeding in the run-up to Breastfeeding Awareness Week, by pointing out its importance to baby’s health. The week runs from May 14th and May 20th 2006.

 

Meg says:

 

“Breastfeeding is a highly effective method of reducing potential health problems among babies in the UK. We need to encourage mothers to breastfeed by offering the necessary support and assistance. Currently around 60% of mothers in my constituency are said to breastfeed and we can help new mothers more at this complex and challenging time.”

 

“Breastfeeding Awareness Week is about promoting greater equality in the health of children nationwide, regardless of that child’s social background or geographical location.”

 

Levels of breastfeeding among mothers vary greatly across the UK: Richmond and Twickenham Primary Care Trust has a 98.9% breastfeeding initiation rate, in comparison to 33% in Knowsley. Breastfeeding Awareness Week aims to promote a nationwide understanding of the importance of breastfeeding and strives to reduce health inequalities among British babies.
