Launch features in local press
On January 19th 2010, Lord Victor Adebowale, chancellor of the University of Lincoln, officially opened Gainsborough Baby Café.
In Gainsborough just 15 per cent of new mums are exclusively breastfeeding when their baby is six to eight weeks old, significantly lower than a national average of 24 per cent, so in order to tackle the health issue, Lincolnshire Community Health Services and Lincolnshire County Council have joined forces to provide a Baby Café for the town.
Liz Hillman, health coordinator for Lincolnshire Community Health Services, said giving new mums breast feeding support is a priority.
"A Baby Cafe is a national initiative that is recognised by mothers as offering gold standard breastfeeding support," she said.
