Celebration of breastfeeding at festival in Northern Ireland


Award-winning family event, Breastival, returns for its seventh year this summer, celebrating and normalising breastfeeding across Northern Ireland.

From August 1-7, Breastival will host a series of events providing support and information for pregnant women.

The week-long breastfeeding festival coincides with World Breastfeeding Week and includes talks, workshops, and fun activities for all families to get involved in, both in person and online.

Through panel discussions, webinars, and a host of other activities, Breastival seeks to normalise breastfeeding and support families on their breastfeeding journey from pregnancy to birth, early days and beyond.

The festival will host a coffee morning with mothers, babies and MLAs to launch World Breastfeeding Week on July 31 and celebrate the installation of our mum-led photo exhibition in the Long Gallery at Stormont.

Breastival Founder Jennifer Hanratty said: Breastival is a beautiful celebration of breastfeeding in all its forms. This year’s theme is enabling breastfeeding by empowering working parents.”
