Breastfeeding mothers in Jersey are being encouraged to feed their children in public.
The Big Latch event has been organised by the Jersey Breastfeeding Working Group. The aim is to remove the stigma of women breastfeeding their children in public and make it normal, day-to-day practice. The group is also calling for legislation to be brought in to protect women breastfeeding in public.
The Big Latch is taking place at Elephant Park in St Brelade today (Friday 21st September). The event is being supported by Family Nursing & Home Care (FNHC), Jersey Child Care Trust, Health and Community Midwives from the States of Jersey and National Childbirth Trust Jersey.
A member of the FNHC has said the importance of breastfeeding cannot be overstated.
