A PILOT scheme to support new mums with breast feeding has proved such a success it is being rolled out across Doncaster.

The scheme, tested in the Edlington area, offers telephone support, giving the new mum the necessary contact details should she struggle with breast feeding.

Health visitor, Andrea Ibbeson, who worked on the Edlington pilot scheme, said: “We ring the mum when she gets home from hospital to offer support with breast feeding. We can also offer support via our breastfeeding peer supporters, who are mums themselves, who can visit the new mums and offer help.”
