On Friday 15th September, Manchester Art Gallery will play host to a Breastfeeding Celebration day featuring parent and baby activities, themed art, stalls and local offers.  

The event is organised by Manchester Local Care Organisation’s Infant Feeding Team and celebrates National Breastfeeding Week, as well as the fifth birthday of the Infant Feeding Team — an NHS citywide service that offers community-based feeding support for parents in the antenatal and postnatal period.

Doors will open from 10:30am at Manchester Art Gallery on Mosley Street and anyone who has a keen interest in breastfeeding is invited to come along and share in the festivities until 2:00pm. The theme for this year’s National Breastfeeding Week was ‘Everyone has a part to play in supporting breastfeeding’ and this celebration day is about exactly that — promoting positivity, awareness and education for all around breastfeeding. 

Katy McCall, Families Learning Manager from Manchester Art Gallery said, “We are delighted to host this exciting celebration event. We have partnered with Manchester Local Care Organisation’s Infant Feeding team since 2018 and are passionate about working together to understand how art and culture can support the delivery of services and improve outcomes for Manchester families.” 

Claire Bisaro, from the Infant Feeding Team, said “We want to celebrate all things breastfeeding and we hope this will be an opportunity for parents to see all the different places, organisations and people they can get support from with their breastfeeding journey – from the hospital and community infant feeding teams, to breastfeeding charities and other community networks in the area.”

So come along parents, little ones and all for a day of positive celebration and knowledge-sharing in support of breastfeeding!
