Thank you to all the dads/partners supporting the breastfeeding couple! your role is not often discussed or recognised, but without you not much breathing will happen.

In celebration of world breastfeeding week, I’ll do a daily post on the topic to raise awareness and provide the sort of information parents often do not end up receiving. Disclaimer: none of this is intended to make anyone feel bad about not breastfeeding or stopping. It takes a village to breastfeed and support in many levels needs to be in place.

The new favourite breakfast in our household is chocolate chia pudding with fresh berries. Why? It’s a great make ahead AND it’s packed with essential fatty acids and protein to keep the brain sharp and blood glucose levels stable through the morning. Oh, and not to mention, it’s vegan, it’s natural, unprocessed and free of harmful additives.

Time in nature is good for mental wellbeing and our immune system because when we spend time outside the friendly bacteria in our gut becomes more diverse.

Breastfeeding reduces the risks of developing breast and ovarian cancer. The longer you breastfeed for, the more it reduces the risk. Did you know the World Health Organisation recommends breastfeeding for 2 years for all women regardless of socioeconomic status? Not sure if you’ll be able to breastfeed or continue? Contact your (postnatal) doula, she can give you support and refer you to a lactation consultant or breastfeeding counsellor if needed. #breastfeeding #breastscreening #mammogram #postnatal #doula #postpartum #baby #eastgrinsteadmums #tunbridgewellsmums #haywardsheathmums #midsussexmamas #midsussexmums #midsussexfamilies
