What we do
We are a group of Breastfeeding Supporters and Birthworkers, working together to create a mobile breastfeeding support clinic and offering online support.
We have a working bus that is currently being converted, which will travel the nation to create a country-wide community of people committed to working together to support breastfeeding families.
As a result of the Covid 19 Crisis, work on the bus has currently had to cease and it won't be able to travel. We've begun offering online support in the form of zoom calls.
If you'd like to access support, please message us on the Maddie's Miracle Facebook Page.
Why We Exist
There are many women across the UK who are isolated for different reasons, or can't access services and support, or their area may not have adequate services.
New mothers may be in need of breastfeeding guidance and support but perhaps can't move due to c-section, or are isolated geographically or due to mental/emotional reasons. The quality (and quantity) of NHS-provided support varies across the UK, family and friends support varies from person to person. Some mums may be very well supported while others are in dire need of it.
Getting the right information and support as a new mum impacts the baby's feeding, sleeping and growth and likewise impacts the mum's (and partner's) sleep and overall wellbeing - so this support is very important.
