About Us:

Hi

My name is Ginny and I'm the project lead and a trained volunteer peer supporter with the Breastfeeding Network Gosport. 

We have been providing information and support to familes throughout the borough of Gosport for over 6 years.

We are still here to support families during the restictions in place due to Covid-19.  Anyone can access virtual 1:1 Zoom support 7 days a week or mums can attend our weekly virtual Coffee, Cake and Chat groups. See https://www.facebook.com/farehamandgosportbreastfeedinginformation/ for details.

We want to support local mums to breastfeed as it has health benefits for both them and their babies, including reducing the risk of gastroenteritis, diabetes and obesity in children and breast and ovarian cancers in mums. There is also evidence to show that mums who breastfeed with support have a reduced risk of postnatal depression.

"Increasing the number of babies who are breastfed could cut the incidence of common childhood illnesses such as ear, chest and gut infections and save the NHS up to £50 million each year” (UNICEF The Baby Friendly Initiative).

We still need your help to enable the project to continue.  We are seeking funding to provide resources for the volunteers and to run another training course next year.

Please support us by buying a lottery ticket and help us keep this vital service running.  If you would like to contact me about the project please email [email protected]

Thank you so much for your support.

Ginny and the local Breastfeeding Network Team
