Somerset Health Authority (and others) use knitted breasts to help teach new mothers how to breastfeed their babies.
A member of Mothers’ Union liaises with their local Health Authority or hospital, to see if they need knitted breasts. They are given guidance on colour, shape and size required. Members then get knitting!
We are grateful to members in Coventry diocese for signposting us to the knitting pattern for these breasts, see Knitted Breast Pattern.
