All of our Health Visitors and Breastfeeding Peer Support Workers are trained under the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative, to provide you with the most up-to-date knowledge and evidence-based advice to help support you with your breastfeeding journey. This includes building close and loving relationships, responsive breastfeeding, safe bottle feeding, and introduction of solid foods.

Breast feeding support is available at ‘drop-in’ sessions held at various locations across Brent, at our local Children Centres. No appointment is required.

We also support parents who are formula feeding their babies by providing information on choosing milks and making up feeds, and helping them to feed safely and responsively.

Our breastfeeding support service is available for all families that live in Brent. We can provide support and information to families following the birth of your baby.

You can call our single point access (SPA) service number on 0208 102 4900 or email clcht.brentinfantfeeding@nhs.net if you require any information or support. 

Your Health Visitor will contact you to arrange a home visit between day 10 and 14 after the birth of your baby and will refer you to one of our breastfeeding clinics if required.

In response to Covid-19 groups are not running and breastfeeding support is by appointment only. 
Parents can call / email us on
0208 102 4900 or email clcht.brentinfantfeeding@nhs.net to request infant nutrition support.

Support is available via telephone, virtual contact on Bluejeans, or Face2Face support for more complex feeding issues.
