A Thorne in My Boob, is a free to attend breastfeeding support group held weekly on Thursdays in Thorne.
They are having a 3rd birthday party in March and Andie, who set the group up, got in touch to tell Mumblers a bit about it. A mum of three, who has experienced the ups and downs of breastfeeding her own children, she knew others would be in the same position.
“I was inspired by my local breaststart group who put me forward for peer support training in 2013. I learned that love, support and information is key for a healthy breastfeeding journey. Advice and opinions are are given from all angles as a new mum and I learned that giving facts and not judging a mums decision or choice is far more helpful. Fast forward to 2016, i’d had my 3rd baby and there wasn’t a breastfeeding group in my area any more. The nearest one was 2 buses away, so I spoke with Thorne Leisure Centre who amazingly gave me their sports hall every week. They were fantastic and i’ll always be thankful. In 2019, our local Pentecostal Church in Thorne gifted us the use of their cafe area for our gathering. It’s a perfect match for A Thorne in My Boob. We have toys, tables, a warm bright welcoming environment, great coffee and mums can bring their own lunch.”
The group is FREE to attend and runs during term time – Thursdays 12pm-1.30pm.
Come along and see us at our new venue, Thorne Pentecostal Church. Peel Castle Road, Thorne, Doncaster, DN8 5LZ
