Whilst our in person breastfeeding support groups are unable to run due to Coronavirus, we are running virtual groups on Zoom. Each session has an NCT-trained Breastfeeding Counsellor present, as well as some of our brilliant Peer Supporters. We are running each group to mirror our in-person groups (e.g., MOBS Dursley Zoom group runs on a Monday, just like real life MOBS D). This is so you can get to know people virtually before meeting them in real life once we are able to safely re-start our in person groups.
Details of the six weekly Zoom meet ups are on our Facebook page events section.
Please join the group’s Facebook page to find out details of the events.
Please note that you will need to have your video/camera on throughout the group as it is face to face.
Some mothers will be breastfeeding, some expressing, some mixed feeding. Some mothers will have new babies, some older babies or toddlers. Some may be starting breastfeeding, some may be weaning. GBSN recognises that every mother’s breastfeeding experience is different.
If you have a breastfeeding issue or a question that you’d like to talk about with a BFC, we offer next day virtual video support, sometimes the same day (Monday – Friday). Please book a free virtual 1:1 session
If you have attended one of our Zoom groups, please fill in an attendance form – these are vital for us to evidence the support we have given when making grant applications to keep GBSN running.
