1 Mins read

Speaking after the Causeway Coast and Glens Council Corporate Policy Committee passed a motion to support the #NotSorryMums campaign and to ensure that all councils facilities are a part of the ‘Breastfeeding welcome here scheme’ Sinn Féin Councillor Kathleen McGurk said:

“I am delighted that my motion calling on the Causeway Coast and Glens Council to support the #NotSorryMums campaign and to ensure that all councils facilities are a part of the ‘Breastfeeding welcome here scheme’ was passed unanimously at the Corporate Policy Committee tonight.

“Despite breastfeeding been recognised by many health and social care professionals as the best way to feed babies and in particular babies up to six months of age the north still has some of the lowest breastfeeding figures in Europe.

“As a mother who breastfed, I have first-hand experience of negative perceptions in public spaces and society in general which can impact on your ability to breastfeed.

“The passing of this motion will help promote and normalise breastfeeding and challenge the social stigma that is attached to breastfeeding, particularly in relation to breastfeeding in public places.”
