saying "other" religions may just be the nurse's own assumptions showing through, perhaps she's one of those who talk about Britain being a "Christian country".

alternatively, the nurse could have been meaning that whilst, obviously, the mother's own religion permitted breastfeeding in public other religions may not.

In both cases the word "other" makes sense.
