UK Mothers being paid to breastfeed their own children
So this is an interesting one - mothers being paid to breastfeed their own children. In this UK pilot program, a group of women in poorer areas of the UK where breastfeeding is at an all time low are being offered incentives in the form of food vouchers to breastfeed their babies for the first six months.
If the pilot is successful the intention is to roll the program out nation-wide. Keep in mind the UK has one of the worst breastfeeding rates in the world. Do you think it is right to do so? Will it work?
