National Breastfeeding Week takes place this week, and with it comes the launch of two local support groups for mothers in Letterkenny and Buncrana.

In fact, there are 15 events taking place in support of National Breastfeeding Week from 1st to 7th of October 2018.

The aim of these events is to let mothers and mothers-to-be, and their families, know about the benefits of breastfeeding, how important it is for good health of baby and mother, and what supports that are available for breastfeeding mothers and their families.
