Phew! It's been a busy week health what with the Volunteer Fair and World Contraceptive Day on Wednesday, and now we have World Heart Day and The Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge coming up tomorrow.
Did you know that despite the many benefits to both baby and mother, Ireland has one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding in the world? Or that you’re never too young to start looking after your heart? Well now you do, so start looking after it now!
And remember, NUIG is a breastfeeding-friendly campus but if you do want a quiet space for you and your baby or to express milk, then the Relaxation Room at the back of Wellness Centre at the back of The Hub / AnBaile Beag is available for you – for details contact the Wellness centre at 091 494221.
