The White House Play Café, Chia Naturally Healthy and The Groundworks took part in the event led by Medela which is now in its fourth year.

The 2019 celebration followed a recent survey that revealed 75 per cent of mums believe that guidance from breastfeeding mothers positively impacted their feeding experience.

Owner of Chia Naturally Healthy Lucy Fisher said: "As a breastfeeding mother to a young baby myself, it's really important for me that places - especially local to me - make myself and other feeding mums feel comfortable and welcome in their establishments.

"Breastfeeding is no easy task - trying to cover yourself and your baby while being new to breastfeeding is ever trickier. Knowing it's accepted and encouraged is such a breath of fresh air. This is why Chia wanted to take part and show our support for all the mums out there doing a great job."
