Our breastfeeding support service provides mothers with information on breastfeeding, delivered by our qualified breastfeeding support workers.

This is available at a breastfeeding group setting or via a home visit or telephone. Our service is aligned with the credible, worldwide Unicef baby friendly initiative.

No appointment is necessary. You can find your nearest group on the Breastfeeding Network. We also offer home visits to mums who find it hard to get to a group in the early days.
