More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

Group runs every Monday (except Bank Hols) from 10.30-11.30.

Open to all, if you are pregnant want to find out more about breastfeeding or you are a feeding mum. You don't need to have a problem to come along we'd love to see you even if you have some good tips & advice you'd like to share about your own breastfeeding experiences.

We do have access to Midwives & Health Visitors if there are any major concerns.

Group is run by local mums who all have 1st hand experience of Breastfeeding & some have trained as peer supporters so have a bit more knowledge to help out with any difficulties.

It's a very informal friendly group run by mums for mums & if you're new to the feeding thing it's a great place to practice feeding in front of others (most of whom will be feeding their little ones at some point during the session) before you head out into the big wide world!

Feel free to pop along during the session with your little one (or bump) if in need of advice, support or you just want a chat & cuppa.
