Our seven groups offer breastfeeding information, support and encouragement to families at every stage of their breastfeeding journey. Whether you are pregnant, getting started with breastfeeding, experiencing difficulties or wishing to wean, we are here for you.
Every group is run by breastfeeding mothers, for breastfeeding mothers. All our peer supporters have breastfed their own babies and taken a course in breastfeeding peer support and each group also has a specialist breastfeeding counsellor.
You don’t need to have a problem to come to our group. We aim to provide a friendly, social place to meet, chat and get information and support if you require it. Many mothers just want to meet others and relax with a cup of tea in a welcoming place.
Although most people attending our group are mothers with babies, we also welcome partners, grandparents and friends who are supporting a breastfeeding mother or mum-to-be. Older siblings are also welcome and we have toys and areas for them to play in.
Each group also carries:
- a free library of books on breastfeeding and other parenting topics
- a free Bravado nursing bra fitting service – you can also purchase bras and vest tops
