Clare Bailey MLA speaks at Breastival Festival in Belfast

Monday 6 August 2018

Clare Bailey MLA has taken part in the Politics of Milk panel discussion as part of the Breastival event in Belfast.

Breastival Belfast hosted Northern Ireland’s largest gathering of breastfeeding families to celebrate world breastfeeding week.

Clare Bailey MLA said:

“Breastival is pioneered by two local mums and I’m delighted to support their efforts and contribute to the panel discussion.

“Breastfeeding rates in Northern Ireland lag behind other U.K. regions and European nations. Breastfeeding has proven benefits for mothers and babies and women should be empowered to make the choices that best suit them and their families.

“This means breaking down the barriers to breastfeeding. Women and babies must be supported and protected by wider society when breastfeeding”.
