The hospital runs lactation advice classes for new mums and mums-to-be. The lcasses include teaching them how to safely and correctly express milk using breast pumps etc, which is best not to be done on the womens own breast unless it is the 'right time. Instead they are supposed to use latex breats, howvere the latex breasts are expensive and the organisation was struggling to provide enough (and of suitable variation for the women) so oen of the nurses and her mum started knitting breats for the women to practice with.
