Big Latch On is back

Every Tuesday morning, a Little Latch On is held in the Maternity Ward at Wairarapa Hospital to share infant feeding information, provide guidance and support mums, partners, and babies.

Lactation consultant Julie Foley is a “warm and friendly” advisor that quickly puts any troubled mums at ease and can offer guidance around latching and positioning techniques.

Julie is also available for one-on-one consultations for more complex issues and works closely with midwives and peer supporters.

On Friday, August 2, the annual Big Latch On will be held at the Carterton Events Centre at 9.30am.

Each year, the Big Latch On recognises the effort Wairarapa mums and families put in to give their babies a great start in life.

There will be entertainment for toddlers, prizes, giveaways, stalls, and information, and the official latch count will be at 10.30am.

For more information, call 06 377 9130.

Anyone wishing to join the Little Latch On group can just come along to the Maternity Ward any Tuesday morning at 10am.
