A BREASTFEEDING support group has been set up to help new mums.

Volunteers from charity Breastfeeding Together have organised the group for mothers from Golborne and Lowton to get together every Tuesday.

They meet at the Treetops Play and Party Café in Golborne from noon to 2pm.

The charity's project manager Elinor Halliwell said: “Breastfeeding can be really tough in the early days and new mums can find it very difficult without a good support base.

“Groups like this are key to helping mums connect and share experiences while feeling supported and giving them the confidence to feed in public.”

As well as conversing with other parents the group offers new mums the chance to receive antenatal advice.

The group is free for mums with babies under one but there is a £2.75 charge for older children who use the play equipment.

Food and tea and coffee can be bought at the meetings.
