As we previously reported, Charlotte Church has been preparing to encourage more young mothers to breastfeed, after new statistics reveal that only 42% of Welsh mothers under 20 breastfeed compared to 76% of mothers over 30.
The singer launched the campaign at the Wales Millennium Centre yesterday May 12, where she joined other mums, urging them to consider the health benefits that breastfeeding provides to both themselves and their babies. This drive begins at the start of Breastfeeding Awareness Week (May 11th to 17th). To read more about the campaign click here.
