Environmentally, breast milk has no waste products and leaves no carbon footprint.
Breast milk is FREE, convenient, clean and safe – always available at the right temperature anytime.
We hold antenatal breastfeeding workshops on Tuesday evening from 5.00 pm to 6.30 pm and Thursday evening from 6.00 pm to 7.30 pm. All women are encouraged to attend this workshop once during pregnancy from 28 weeks onwards. This session is in additional to the parent education classes, which all women are encouraged to attend. Early booking is advisable as these sessions are very popular.
Please phone 01 8730596 or 8730632 to book your place.

In the Rotunda we have a breastfeeding support group, which usually meets every Thursday morning at 11.30 am but please ring to confirm that the session is going ahead. If you have any problems with feeding at home the lactation midwife in the hospital is only a phone call away at 01 8171700, Monday to Friday. There are community support groups in your area and meetings are usually held in the local health centre. Your public health nurse will tell you the date and time.
