    Good Celebrity role models 

    The singer Pink is quite happy to talk about Breastfeeding her daughter Willow and has spoken about it often in the press. So when her Husband Carey Hart posted a picture on Twitter of his wife feeding their daughter last week I thought it was a good thing.   In my view this is the way forward with regard to encouraging young mums  ‘especially’ to Breastfeed because of  celebrity culture we need more celebritites appearing in the media showing that Breastfeeding is normal. The media tends to show the extreme images of Breastfeeding e.g women feeding their 4 year old in public, which does put people off. Take a look here Pink

    Four born every second 

    The BBC documentary “Why Poverty” looks at women from different countries in the world, and their experience of childbirth.  The programe shows how each country deals with childbirth and infant mortality. 

    Here in the UK we have a very good ante natal service and  although we do have issues within the NHS regarding tackling infant mortality, this shows how good the NHS is and the documenary compares some of the extreme conditions women in other countries face, for example, Sierra Leone has a high Infant Mortality rate,and  shows a pregnant lady travelling for days to get to a medical centre only to lose her baby and die herself. Watch the video here
