The Big Breastfeeding Café is Back – Celebrating Mother’s Milk Across the UK, this May!

The Big Breastfeeding Café returns for its fifth year, aiming to bring thousands of women all over the UK together on the 6th May to celebrate breastfeeding with a coffee and a cake! Celebrating mother’s milk as well as sharing support and advice, we’re sure 2020’s event will be bigger and better than ever!

After the amazing celebration in 2019, we’re so excited to share The Big Breastfeeding Café is returning for its fifth year this May! It’s set to be the biggest and best event yet, so we’d love for you to get involved!

Here at Medela, we are passionate about uniting parents when it comes to breastfeeding and know that it’s so important that families have a strong network to provide breastfeeding support. On May 6th, we will be bringing families together to share their feeding experiences, the challenges they have faced and the amazing moments that make it all worthwhile.

In previous years, The Big Breastfeeding Café has garnered national exposure, celebrity mum support and engaged thousands of mums all over the UK. Whether it’s individual mums hosting their very own Breastfeeding Cafes from home, gathering in a local coffee shop or any other venue, all types of cafes are welcome!

Parents are encouraged to celebrate and chat all things breastfeeding over a cuppa and a cake on Wednesday 6th May.

Medela UK’s Marketing Manager Charlotte Price commented:

“We’re so proud of the amazing event The Big Breastfeeding Café has become, and we’re really looking forward to 2020’s event. Sharing experiences and advice really can make all the difference to a breastfeeding mum’s journey, so we’re thrilled to be able to facilitate these kinds of conversations at our cafes.”

The 2019 Big Breastfeeding Café saw over 200 cafes take part and host their own cafés across the UK, from the Shetland Isles right down to Plymouth, and we’d love to get even more cafes involved with this fantastic event this year!
