To celebrate National Breastfeeding Week, Letterkenny University Hospital is holding an event on Monday October 3, from 10.30am to 1pm in the Radisson Blu Hotel.
Trina Dinan, Infant feeding/Lactation Clinical Nurse Specialist at the hospital said mothers and their families are warmly invited to attend the event on Monday where representatives from the hospital and the wider community will gather to showcase the available breastfeeding supports available to families in Donegal.
“This event is open to all no matter how long or short their breastfeeding journey has been, or whether breastfeeding exclusively or partially.
“Expectant mothers who wish to obtain further information are most welcome and informal talks will be available on the day.
“Support is essential and in line with the theme of this year’s National Breastfeeding Week – ‘Expert help every step of the way’ – we are focusing our efforts on providing information and highlighting existing supports to ensure families can readily access support every step of their breastfeeding journey.
“We are also delighted to welcome Elizabeth Bailie, Human Milk Bank Co-ordinator from South West Acute Hospital, Enniskillen to our event to provide information about the Human Milk Bank Service,” she said.
All are welcome to attend the event and refreshments will be served.
