Mums aim to help break breastfeeding record

MIDWIVES are backing:- 'The Big Latch On' in Southport this week in support of women who want to breastfeed.  'The Big Latch On' is a global event to raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding celebrated in 120 countries. Women and children will gather in their own communities to take part with the aim of breaking 2016's breastfeeding record, when nearly 18,000 children were fed.  The local event will take place on Friday, 4 August 2017, at Lakeside Church, Fairway, Southport, PR9 0LA. Registration is between 9.30am and 10am. A headcount will be taken, at 10.30am, for the 'Official Southport Big Latch On' submission. 1 mum who will be supporting the event is Laura Corrigan from Formby whose baby, Arthur, was born at Ormskirk Hospital, on Saturday, 22 July 2017, weighing 8lb 9oz.  "I always wanted to breastfeed because I knew it would be good for Arthur. I'm also told it's a great way to lose weight!" said Laura.  Expressing milk also means that dad, Paul Mason, can help with feeding too. "The midwives have been fantastic and gave me loads of support, particularly early on when it can be so easy to give up." Lesley Fawcett, Infant Feeding Coordinator, at the Hospital, said:- "2016's event was so successful it has been moved to a much larger venue for 2017. It's great to see mums and babies reaping the benefits of breastfeeding and we look forward to meeting them at the event."
