Two of the country’s biggest household brands, the NHS and Mothercare, have paired up ahead of National Breastfeeding Week (24 – 30 June). 

During the week, new and expectant parents can visit Mothercare in Birmingham City Centre (14 – 28 Corporation Street) to get information and support from NHS advisors about the benefits of breastfeeding.

The drop-in sessions will be held in Mothercare from Tuesday 26 – Friday 29 June between 10am and 2.30pm.

Sharon Yates, infant feeding co-ordinator from BCHC, said: “Our overall aim is to make breastfeeding the norm, by using fun and innovative ways to engage everyone and help new parents and parents–to-be make an informed choice about breastfeeding.”
