I just read that the Somerset Mothers Union have been enlisted to supply the NHS with, not woollen jumpers or hats or even gloves for that matter. Recruits have been asked to knit 150 woollen breasts, no this isn’t some kind of kinky health initiative but they are required for Health Visitors and Community Nurses.
They will replace the balloons previously used by Health Visitors to demonstrate to new mothers how to breast feed and the problems which can be encountered such as blocked ducts.
Can you imagine what the grandchildren would say when they arrive at grandma’s house to find her knitting boobies. Lol
