As midwives, we do all we can to help new mums breastfeed and give them the confidence to do this both at home and while out and about.
That’s why we love these celebs, including Alex Jones and Liv Tyler, sharing their #Brelfies. If seeing these lovely pictures of celebrities feeding their babies helps just one more mum feel comfortable and confident, what’s not to like?
Why we love breastfeeding
- Breast milk is a fantastic first food for your baby because it protects them from illness, which formula milk can’t do. It’s also so much easier in the middle of the night!
- It lessens your risk of cancer, helps your bones get stronger and helps you lose your baby weight.
- It's free!
- We know breastfeeding is often not easy for women, and should be celebrated.
So it’s a big cheer from all the Tommy’s midwives for these marvelous mums.
