The National Breastfeeding Helpline is due to take its 500 000th call today! What a fantastic milestone. :-D

I hope that half a million gets decent media coverage! Does anyone know how many calls had been taken on the various helpline services prior to that (the full cumulative total)?
And what's the 70% goal, pardon my ignorance?

Each branch has a target of 70% participation by counsellors on helpline. When you take into account counsellors who are away or sick or on some kind of leave, it is a remarkably difficult goal to achieve and ACT/Sth NSW is the first to achieve it - we are all very proud of ourselves up this way 8)
