Our breastfeeding support group in Rutherglen is not particularly helpful. Except for meeting other breastfeeding mothers we don't have much interaction with the health visitor present other than then weighing the babies if we ask for them to be weighed.
I feel they could take more interest in us and ask how our week had been. I also feel they could take the time to help introduce everyone so people are not left out. Also I feel that there should at least be tap water available as breastfeeding can be thirsty work and new mums can't always remember to bring some. Tea and coffee would make things more sociable and I'm sure mums would make a donation towards this.
