Launch of Breastfeeding Friendly Kiama

Following the recent focus on support for those in our community affected by dementia, the spotlight has now turned onto those at a different stage of their lives – breastfeeding mothers.

Over 70 venues around the area have signed up to offer a welcoming environment for mothers wanting to feed their babies naturally. The initiative also includes the setting up of a Breastfeeding support Group which will meet regularly at the Library.

Council’s Health Promotion Officer Regan Figg (who coincidentally is about to go on maternity leave) says the group will be facilitated by volunteer lactation consultants, breastfeeding counsellors and local child and family health nurses.
