Oakwoods encompasses Serviced Apartments, Rest home and Hospital services. We might not suit everyone, but we might suit you. A new chapter awaits you. Oakwoods Village is the friendly village. It's the sort of place where you'll be on first name terms with your neighbours, just like the kiwi communities of years past. It's the sort of place where helpful staff are like one of the family. Having this kind of companionship and support gives you a peace-of-mind that can't be replaced. It also means that each day is something to look forward to - a chance to catch up with friends, a chance to get out and about, to relax or do anything else you choose. Right now this wonderful village community has a fine selection of quality living options that anyone would be proud to call home. From independent villas to serviced apartments, we have something to fit your needs. Start your new story by visiting on one of our Open Days this week.

' Barbara Roberts Breast is best: Mum Jenna Bowden with twins Saxon and Quinn at a previous Big Latch on at Takaka's Wholemeal Cafe, part of a national attempt to break the world breastfeeding record. The Big Latch On this Friday aims to dispel one of the biggest barriers to breast feeding -- isolation. Barbara Roberts breastfed her daughter Katelyn until she was 21G2 and is currently feeding five- month-old baby Mikayla. She described her experiences with both children as a good run, but said it was important to have a community of mothers for sup- port. There are those nights when you're up every two hours, and you feel like you're the only one,'' she said. I've been really lucky, lots of mums have it harder than I've had.'' Barbara said problems such as colic or cracked nipples could arise when babies did not learn to attach themselves or latch on to the breast properly. Her top tips included ask for help'' and it gets better.'' Those first six weeks are the hardest, if you can get past that it's definitely easier,'' she said. There's so much evidence out there that breastfeeding is so good for babies.'' The Big Latch On is a group breastfeeding session co-ordinated by Women's Health Action as part of World Breastfeeding Week. Women at St Thomas' church auditorium in Motueka, the Wholemeal Cafe in Takaka and the Victory Community Centre will simultaneously breastfeed their child for one minute from 10.30am onwards, when a witness will count the number of feeding pairs. The aim is to beat last year's total. Mothers need to be regis- tered before 10.30am, which is when the official record counting happens. World Breastfeeding Week is now celebrated in more than 170 countries.
