BBC Radio Sheffield will join forces with Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour next week for a special series of programmes about breastfeeding.
The idea came from Radio Sheffield’s weekend breakfast presenter Kat Cowan who has recently returned to work after maternity leave. The presenter gave birth to her son Cooper in March 2018.
Cowan will be a guest on Woman’s Hour on Monday January 28th when she will talk openly about her own experiences trying to breastfeed her baby.
She said: “It was by far and away the hardest part of being a new mum and a world away from the images I’d had of feeding my baby when I was pregnant. I have never doubted myself so much and never felt as guilty as I did when it became obvious I couldn’t produce enough milk for my son. What made it worse is that I felt very isolated.”
