About Us:

Hi

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

We have been providing information and support to the local community for over 5 years.  In this time we have trained and upskilled over 40 local mums and last year we supported over 170 mums and babies on their breastfeeding journey. 

We currently run a breastfeeding support group on a Wednesday 10.30-12 at the Pallant Cafe and we are just about to start a new group at The Spring on the last Thursday of the month from 10-12.  Anyone can come along at any stage of their journey to chat to us about breastfeeding or get support. 

We are currently running a peer support training course for 8 local mums and will be starting some new groups alongside Health Visitor Child Health Clinics in the New Year.

We want to support local mums to breastfeed as it has health benefits for 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, to enable us attend local events 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
