CRIBS is a very welcoming and friendly support group. Situated in a large church hall, there is a seating area where you can chat with other mums and peer supporters. There are soft mats and soft toys for babies located within the seating area so your baby is always close by. Away from the seating area (but within view) is space for toddlers and older children to play – with a wide range of toys to play with. Older children are always welcome, as well as Dads, Grandparents etc. Hot and cold drinks (with biscuits!) are always available.

There are plenty of parking spaces in the church car park and you can bring your pushchair into the church hall (good for nap time).

We stock a wide range of nursing bras which can be fitted in privacy by a trained peer supporter. We have a good selection of books you can borrow, which cover various aspects of parenting.

Our trained peer supporters have all breastfed their own children and also have experience in Baby-led weaning. Mothers and peer supporters are also supported by a professional NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor who attends every week.

Whether you are expecting and want to learn more about breastfeeding or are currently breastfeeding, please come and visit – you are always welcome.
