We Support Our Mums is the new breastfeeding welcome scheme for Doncaster. Could your business benefit from being a breastfeeding-friendly venue?
Led by Doncaster Council, the scheme aims to make it easier for breastfeeding mums to recognise where they will be welcomed to breastfeed their babies whilst out and about in Doncaster. From cafes and coffee shops, to pharmacies and supermarkets, we’re keen to get as many local businesses as possible taking part.
There are a number of benefits for businesses to sign up to the FREE scheme:
- Improving customer/client service – training staff to be welcoming and helpful to a breastfeeding mum encourages them to be more welcoming, supportive and considerate to all customers.
- It can attract a new customer/client base –When mums find a place that welcomes them to feed their babies, they pass on the good news and customer numbers may grow as a result.
- It can improve your image and your business will be listed on the We Support Our Mums directory
- It’s free to sign up to and you can get these benefits without having to spend a lot of money – the two most important factors mums appreciate most when breastfeeding out and about are a welcoming atmosphere and supportive staff.
