Is Breast Best? Cherry Healey Investigates
Cherry Healey explores the topical issue of breastfeeding. She meets a teen mum who never even considered it, and a group who believe that breastfeeding is the only option.
In this fun yet compelling documentary, Cherry Healey explores the topical issue of breastfeeding and asks Is Breast Best? The World Health Organisation advises that all mothers breastfeed their children for at least the first six months after birth, but Cherry herself found the experience painful and traumatic and eventually gave up.
Over a year later she is still plagued by feelings of guilt for not trying harder and is now on a mission to find out how other mums feel - is she the only one? Along the way she meets Jess, a teen mum who never even considered breastfeeding and has formula-fed all the way with no worries at all, and a group of 'lactivists' who strongly believe that breastfeeding is the only option for a new mum.
Join Cherry as she explores the world of boobs, bottles, babies and breast milk with her usual refreshing honesty.
