Story

The Breastfeeding Networks Big Tea Break is an annual fundraising event running between the 1st and 31st October 2019, raising money for our Drugs in Breastmilk information service. An evaluation carried out by Dr Amy Brown in 2019 described the service as A lifeline when no one else gives you an answer.

The Drugs in Breastmilk information service was set up more than 20 years ago by the Breastfeeding Network and has been funded by the charity ever since. It was established in response to reports of many breastfeeding women receiving inconsistent or inaccurate advice from some health professionals when they were prescribed a medication or procedure. This service enables them to access the latest evidence-based information on risk, from an experienced pharmacist.

The demand for the service has increased every year and we now receive on average 550 emails per month from health professionals and families. We also have a very busy Facebook page @BfNDrugsinBreastmilkinformation which receives around 600 requests for support every month.

The service doesnt receive any external funding so we rely on fundraising and donations to keep the service running.
