First time mum, Kelly, is just one of the many mothers worldwide who receive the support they need for breastfeeding from their local Baby Café. She writes of the Baby Café at Tanglin Mall, Singapore:
"As a first time Mum, the prospect of parenthood, and all the challenges that come with it, is pretty daunting at times! Yet, here I am, six months down the line with a healthy, happy, exclusively breastfed son Michael, all thanks to the advice and constant support of the Baby Café team. Baby Café’s resident Lactation Consultant, Uma, along with midwives Jane and Yani, have been so instrumental in helping me overcome the hurdles that could well have resulted in me giving up on breastfeeding and all the benefits that go with it. Instead, I now feed with ease and total confidence and can encourage those mums within the Baby Café group that face the same problems.
Baby Café is a weekly fixture on my calendar where Michael and I can go and meet new people, look forward to seeing the friends we’ve made, indulge in the most delicious coffee and cake and know that we’re not alone on this amazing journey. Michael and I are incredibly grateful for Singapore’s very own Baby Café!
See you on Monday afternoon!"
