My breastfeeding support worker is having her role removed by the NHS. Without her so many mums in the area will not receive the support needed and may fail to breastfeed their babies. Please sign this petition in the hopes that we can save Donna's breastfeeding support role.

    Fact. Your child's immune system will not be fully develop until about 7 years. Breastfeeding allows your own immune system to protect your child. Our closest genetic relatives, primates, don't have antibiotic protection and they breastfeed for about 5 years. Increasingly we do not have antibiotic protection. Let us protect our children's health in the best way we can by learning the old skill of breastfeeding. If someone gave me some seeds I might be able to grow some food, but if a gardener taught me, I would be able to do it much more reliably. Growing food and feeding babies is possible in quite extreme circumstances if you have the right skill set. Save the teachers.

    Removing the breastfeeding support worker is such a backward move.
