Ipswich Hospital has changed its policy on Bounty representatives after a Suffolk woman raised concerns after her experience. Bounty is a service which gives new mothers a pack containing free samples such as nappies, a government child benefit application, and a photography service. Ms Bowman who gave birth back in May wrote two letters to the hospital expressing how she doesn’t feel the bounty representatives should be able to approach new mothers just hours after giving birth. Ms Bowman’s letters have resulted in a change being made - tell us what you think about the issue by taking part in our poll on the story.
