MOBS in Dursley is an informal, friendly support group. We have a seating area where you can socialise with other mums and get information from peer supporters. A quieter space is available for discussions with our Breastfeeding Specialist Worker. We have a large play mat with toys for younger babies and older children, who are most welcome at the group. There are always hot drinks and biscuits on offer.

We sell nursing bras and have a good selection to choose from. Bras can be fitted for you by a trained peer supporter. We have a well-stocked library with books that can be borrowed free-of-charge.

We hold a special [email protected] Dursley week on the third Monday of the month this may be changing, sorry however please note that pregnant women are always welcome every week and mums with babies are still very welcome on this day too!

MOBS Dursley is free to attend. As we are a small self-funding charity, we are always very grateful for donations, whether by cash or paypal.

MOBS Dursley is held 10-midday every Monday (excluding bank holidays) in St James Parish rooms which are directly behind St James’ church, the large church in the centre of Dursley by the market place. Access is best via the main church gates and then you walk either to the left or right of the church and follow the path directly behind to the Parish rooms.
