Swindon’s Coffee #1 is taking part in The Big Breastfeeding Café.

The event on Wednesday, May 1, at the Canal Walk branch is led by breastfeeding brand Medela and will connect mums across the UK via a network of over 200 mini cafes.

Coffee#1 will host an event in each of its 91 outlets. Other cafes will be hosted in people’s homes and independent coffee shops on the same day.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Coffee#1 is delighted to be supporting the Big Breastfeeding Cafe 2019. We strive to create an inviting, inclusive space for everyone in the community and welcoming breastfeeding mothers every day is part of that.”

Now in its fourth year, the aim is to bring parents together, and provide a space to share their experiences of breastfeeding, challenges, rewards and first-hand advice.

“Personal advice from mums who have breastfed themselves, is invaluable,” said Sioned Hilton, Medela UK’s education manager.
