MUMS and toddlers gathered to watch staff cut the cake to celebrate the Baby Cafe’s second birthday.

The cafe was set up in 2010 to offer support and advice to breastfeeding mothers, or those thinking about breastfeeding, and their partners.

Last year, more than 400 mums made use of the service hosted by Woking South Sure Start Children’s Centre at the Ypod on Chobham Road.

It was set up in partnership between all eight Woking Sure Start Children’s Centres, Surrey Community Health and the National Childbirth Trust.

Nicola Norman, Woking South Children’s Centre manager, said: “We are thrilled with the continued success of the Baby Cafe. So far it has seen more than 400 mums between 2011 and 2012.

“It is true that many women want to breastfeed for longer but give up because of problems. We hope that the little bit of extra help and support that the Baby Cafe will offer, will make all the difference.

"The best support is peer support. It is great to make friends within the group. Then breastfeeding will hopefully last longer and they will hopefully be breastfeeding their babies for many weeks with that peer support.

“We are also very aware of the important health benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and child.”

Woking Baby Cafe is open on Mondays from 10am until 12pm.
