Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters’ Network (GBSN) is a charity dedicated to supporting breastfeeding mothers. We currently run 6 weekly breastfeeding support groups in Gloucestershire.
Book a free Virtual 121 call here https://gbsn.org.uk/gbsn-virtual-support-registration-form/
Each group is run by volunteer peer supporters, all mums themselves who have breastfed their own babies and have completed a course in breastfeeding peer support. Each group is also attended by an experienced professional Breastfeeding Counsellor.
Regulations mean that we cannot have more than 15 adults at the group excluding the paid Breastfeeding Counsellor. However, 2m social distancing remains of paramount importance. The room will be assessed before each new parent enters to ensure that social distancing is not compromised. Therefore you may be asked to wait until someone has left.
If you are unable to wait, we will help you to sign up to a virtual one to one with one of our Breastfeeding Counsellors for the next day or maybe even the same day.
We will be collecting information on arrival for Track and Trace via our sign up sheet.
Please do not attend group if you are unwell, even with cold symptoms. If you have symptoms of coronavirus you will need to isolate for ten days and your household contacts for fourteen days, unless your test is negative. Please also do not attend if you are quarantining after returning from abroad.
If you would like help with positioning and attachment (“latching”) please consider booking a virtual one to one or bear in mind that we’ll be socially distancing in the group
We will be ensuring rooms are thoroughly cleaned and providing alcohol gel to sanitise hands. Please wear a mask on arrival until you are settled in your space. We ask that families continue to keep 2m spacing from each other as we have done in our outdoor groups.
Please come with your own drinks, however in true GBSN style we will provide the cakes.
