National Breastfeeding Week October 1st - 7th 2022


Donegal Breastfeeding Week Event Monday 3rd October 2022


The HSE theme for National Breastfeeding week (October 1st-7th) 2022 is

Expert help every step of the way’.


In keeping with the HSE theme, the Maternity Department and Health Promotion team in Letterkenny University Hospital are proud to host an event

in the Radisson Blu Hotel on Monday 3rd of October entitled

‘Providing a warm chain of breastfeeding support to mothers in Donegal’.


Mothers and their families are warmly invited to attend the event where representatives from the hospital and the wider community will gather to showcase the available breastfeeding supports available to families in Donegal. Support is essential and we are focusing our efforts on providing information and highlighting existing supports to ensure families can readily access support every step of their breastfeeding journey.

We are also delighted to welcome Elizabeth Bailie, Human Milk Bank Co-ordinator from South West Acute Hospital to our event.



This event is open to all no matter how long or short their breastfeeding journey has been, or whether breastfeeding exclusively or partially.

Expectant mothers who wish to obtain further information are most welcome and informal talks will be available on the day.


This event is supported by Healthy Ireland and Healthy Donegal.
