Woodthorpe Breastfeeding Drop-In Clinic

Monday, May 16, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn recently visited some new mums at the breastfeeding clinic held at the Woodthorpe Children’s Centre. The group, which has been in existence for at least five years, meet every week on a Tuesday afternoon, 1-3pm, and offers help, support and advice for new and expectant mums.

 

It is also a great place for them to get together and discuss their experiences and hear how other mums are getting on. Organiser Suzie, who first came five years ago when her child was born and now volunteers for the group, is pleased that many women attend every week and find the friendship of the group very fulfilling.

 

The Children’s Centre offers professional support from midwives and/or health visitors; recently the group was visited by an oral health expert who gave a talk that the mums found very helpful. The sessions are informal drop-in sessions and provide mother-to-mother support; they have recently been more formally set up as a way of improving support for breastfeeding women.

 

Suzie also provides a similar drop-in session on Viking Lea Road on Fridays at 10am-12. She is eager for more mums to attend both groups, if you are interested feel free to drop in, but if you have any questions, please call Suzie on 07815 1922 86.

 

Meg also met Children’s Centre Manager Wendy Kettleborough, who took Meg on a short tour of the new extension to the building. The Centre provides support for families with children under 5, including those expecting a baby, offering access to childcare and early learning, health and family support, help with finding jobs and training as well as drop in sessions and groups. By doing so, the Centre brings services into the community and puts them in one area so that it is easier for families to get services, access advice and information.
