Launch of Milky Way

The Western Trust together with Sure Start are delighted with the success of The ‘Milkey Way’ Breastfeeding Support Group in Lisanelly and Strathroy Sure Start, Omagh.


Speaking about the success of the new group, Ann McCrea, Western Trust breastfeeding specialist, said: “It is fantastic to see so many expectant mums and breastfeeding mums attending the support group and we would like to encourage more mums from the area to attend.   At the Support Group you will have the opportunity to get your baby weighed and get assistance with any problems or concerns you may have.”


Louise Donaldson a new mum said: “The Milkey Way Breast Feeding Support Group is a great way to meet other mums who are breastfeeding their babies. We have developed a unique bond over the past number of weeks as we share the challenges of becoming a new mum.  It is also an excellent opportunity for mums and expectant mums to discuss any concerns they may have with a Sure Start midwife.”


The Milkey Way Breastfeeding Support Group meets every Tuesday from 12noon to 1.30pm at Lisanelly and Strathroy Sure Start (LAST), Gortin Road, Omagh and all mums and expectant mums are welcome to come along for coffee and a chat in a relaxed and friendly environment.
