A mother who was told she was not allowed to breastfeed her newborn baby inside a Warwickshire hospital is due to meet NHS bosses later.
Gemma Murphy complained after she was asked to move to a private room at St Cross Hospital in Rugby in case she offended other patients.
A mother who was forced to stop breastfeeding in a hospital waiting room has said more people need to accept women feeding their babies in public.
Gemma Murphy told ITV News Central that breastfeeding was best for babies - and people should not feel uncomfortable by it.
An investigation has been launched after a mother was banned from breastfeeding her newborn baby in a hospital waiting room.
Gemma Murphy says staff at the hospital of St. Cross in Rugby asked her to move to a private room to avoid 'offending' other patients.
Gemma, a first-time mother, was visiting the hospital in December for a two-hour test, to check if she still had a type of diabetes which she'd developed while pregnant.
Eventually she was taken to a separate room, where she was allowed to breastfeed in private.
It comes after fellow young mum Emily Slough from Rugeley in Staffordshire was labelled a 'tramp' on Facebook for breastfeeding in public.
