Advent Event - Breastfeeding Calendar 2014

What could be better for advent, than a calendar!

Gravesham Breast Buddies have put together a breastfeeding calendar for 2014.  The aim is to empower and inspire new mums, giving them confidence to feed wherever they need to. Working with award-winning local photographer Emma Donovan of The Photography Garden, the images are truly beautiful and show how normal, natural and wonderful breastfeeding is.  Each Mum and Baby in the calendar live in and around Kent and enjoyed taking part in the creation of this beautiful calendar.

Every penny raised from the sale of the calendars is going to the local special care baby fund. 

"Due to an increase in births in the area plus the closure of other maternity services, the birth rate at Darent Valley Hospital has exceeded expectations and so in order to offer the best care possible to every mother and baby, the hospital needed to expand its Maternity and Special Care Baby Units. Whilst some of the funding comes from the NHS, Little Buds was set up to help pay for the lifesaving specialist equipment needed to give every baby the chance they deserve." 
The calendar would make a fabulous Christmas gift for nursing mums, healthcare professionals or anyone with an eye for a pretty picture!  

The calendar is available to pre-order from here:  They cost just £8 each plus postage.  Buy your copy and see Karen (aka BoobieMilk) in September!
We have a calendar to give away for free!
