The #BesideYou campaign kicked off in style with a great evening of canapes, films and fun at Thursday’s launch party. Medway’s own Dr Ranj hosted the launch party alongside Best Beginnings and A Better Medway.
Medway’s Dr Ranj at the Launch Party
Children’s TV doctor and Best beginnings ambassador, Dr Ranj, supports breastfeeding mums in Medway. He left this message:
Mums, Dads, babies, health professionals and peer supporters all joined Dr Ranj at the launch party celebrations. The party was kindly hosted at Medway’s Stop Smoking Service and catered by Cafe Sunlight.
This launch party was truly a celebration of the months of planning and hard work put in to the the #BesideYou campaign so far. We can’t thank the parents, professionals and volunteers enough for all of their hard work in getting the campaign to where it is today. We look forward to sharing the campaign and the message that breastfeeding mums in Medway are supported

The launch party raised a lot of awareness for the #BesideYou campaign, including interest from BBC South East.
Following the success of last month’s launch of the #BesideYou social media accounts, and campaign video, it was time to launch the website! Thursday 8 September saw the grand reveal of the support, services and films available in Medway.
Now that the campaign has launched there are lots of ways you can get involved. Please explore the website and follow us on Facebook , Twitter, and Instagram to share the campaign and help to normalise breastfeeding in Medway.
