Backing for breastfeeding

A wide range of businesses are working with Fenland District Council to promote a scheme designed to make it easier for breastfeeding mothers when they are out and about in town.

Fifteen businesses have so far signed up to support Breastfeeding Welcome, a project that is part of a wider strategy to improve babies’ health and reduce problems in later life, including obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. They include shops, pubs, restaurants and other enterprises.
