On the 1st May thousands of mums will take part in The Big Breastfeeding Café and The Willows Coffee Shop in Kirkwall, at the Garden Centre, will be joining the fun.
Now in its 4th year, the nationwide initiative, led by Medela , a company with products which support breastfeeding ,will connect thousands of Mums via a network of events taking place on the same day across the UK.
Over 200 mini events will take place on the 1st May, to celebrate everyone’s personal breastfeeding experience – whatever it looks like. This year, alongside cafes being hosted by mums in their own homes and village halls, independent coffee shops across the UK are also joining in.
Bringing parents together, the cafes provide a space for mums (dads welcome too!) to share their experiences of breastfeeding, challenges, rewards and first-hand advice over a cup of tea and most importantly, a slice of cake.
Medela was founded in 1961 by Olle Larsson and is headquartered in Switzerland. Under the leadership of Olle Larsson’s son Michael, Medela has become a global player in breastfeeding products and medical vacuum technology . Medela
