Hi All, I wanted to bring to your attention in World Breastfeeding Week that the Premier of QLD Ms Anna Bligh has implemented a new policy whereby breastfeeding mothers are entitled to a one hour paid lac

tation break. This can be taken over a period of smaller breaks if needed. A fridge is also needed to store expressed breast milk. Read the full article here. This is such an amazing step forward and I take my hat off to Anna Bligh for taking a stand. As times are changing more and more women are heading back to work to basically keep them above the poverty line. WIth increasing electricity costs, fuel costs and the cost of food increasing it is almost essential that a mother return to work. This does not mean an end to breastfeeding needs to take place, just work around it, this will give a new mother the feeling of great confidence and also support from her family and work place. Keep up the great work Ms Bligh and I look forward to more choice for women, espicially in the home birthing department.
