Free breastfeeding support group
MOTHERS in the area are being invited to attend a weekly free breastfeeding support group at the Healthy Living Centre, New Ross.
The group meets every Thursday from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm and a public health nurse is in attendance, and older children are welcome to attend.
Public heath nurse Monica Donnelly said: 'We are trying to promote breastfeeding as only one in four mothers breastfeed in Ireland, which is way below average European levels.
'We are trying to highlight the long term positive health benefits for both mother and baby of breastfeeding.'
