Coronavirus

During these unprecedented times of Coronavirus, here at GBSN we are continuing to strive to do our best to support Gloucestershire mothers on their breastfeeding journeys. Unfortunately, we have had to temporarily close our 7 weekly support groups.

Instead, Mums and Mums-to-be can book virtual face-to-face time with one of our Breastfeeding Specialist Workers. These are free of charge and can be booked here.

We are also launching “Preparation for Breastfeeding” virtual workshops for expectant mothers and their support partners. More information here. There is a small charge and can be booked here.

Our Breastfeeding Specialist Workers are all self-employed and we continue to pay them on an “hours worked” basis.  We will actually spend more on consultant time than usual, helping our much-loved professional experts to maintain their income during these difficult times. Although, just like our usual face-to-face groups, our virtual support is FREE, we are now losing on income as we usually collect donations at groups.  If you are able to donate to help GBSN keep going, we would be more grateful now than ever before.

Thank you for your continuing support as we do our best to continue to provide free breastfeeding support to the amazing women of Gloucestershire.
