The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is supporting World Breastfeeding Week 2014 and has been providing information on breastfeeding support groups, guidance and benefits in Rotherham Hospital main entrance all week.

This year's World Breastfeeding Week theme asserts the importance of increasing and sustaining the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding. Breast milk provides the only nourishment a baby needs until he is around six months of age, when solids can then be introduced. It is made just right for the baby and changes to meet the baby’s needs; providing special factors that promote growth. Breast milk also contains antibodies which provide protection from chest, tummy, ear and urinary infections and makes babies digestive system more acidic to prevent thriving of harmful bacteria. It is good for mums too; reducing the risk of Premenopausal Breast Cancer, reducing incidents of Ovarian Cancer and the incidents of Osteoporosis. 

New mothers in Rotherham can access 24 hour support or advice on breastfeeding by contacting the 24 hour breastfeeding helpline on 01709 307959. For further information on World Breastfeeding Week visit: http://worldbreastfeedingweek.org/
