World Breastfeeding Week was marked from August 1 – 7 and we love offering support to new mums about breastfeeding.
WSLHD consumer representative Kelly Donnolley shared the below about Westmead Hospital clinical midwifery consultant (postnatal and infant feeding) Michelle Simmons – and we think it’s fantastic!
“This afternoon was spent with the amazing Michelle Simmons, who is a clinical midwifery consultant in postnatal and infant feeding in women’s and newborn health at Westmead Hospital. Michelle is a lady I admire so much, in the way she inspires and supports so many women on their breastfeeding journey. Michelle and I got the chance to chat with new mums, mummies-to-be, midwives and even an awesome new dad, about breastfeeding. We told stories of how hard it can be, how easy it can be, what to expect and our experiences. We laughed, we bonded and we supported. It’s time society stopped generating ‘mummy wars’ and started to be the village we all need. #wbw2017 #bethevillage #breastfeedingsupport
Love it – thanks Kelly!
