Infant feeding in Kensington, Chelsea, Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham

Read more about this page below

Support with feeding is offered by all members of the Health visiting team at the new birth visit and any follow up contacts at home or in the child health clinic. 

Health visitors, community nurses and nursery nurses undertake the UNICEF Baby friendly Initiative Breastfeeding training and can provide mothers and families with information and practical support to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals. Specialist breastfeeding  support is available and can be booked through your health visiting team. 

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.

We support all mothers living in the boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster, whether they are breastfeeding, mixed feeding or formula feeding.

You can contact your health visiting team 0208 200 2500, selecting option 2.

Your health visitor will be able to signpost you to baby clinics and breastfeeding support groups in your area.

We work alongside public health maternity champions and children's Centre staff who have undertaken breastfeeding peer support training and run groups and 1:1 sessions. Community breastfeeding support services in each borough can be found here.

This information is updated quarterly (last updated February 2022). 

A health visitor will visit you at home between 10-14 days following the birth of your baby. Sometimes additional visits may be offered if required. A further contact will be arranged when your baby is 6 weeks old.

The health visitor will let you know about the child health clinics, breastfeeding  support groups and children's centres activities and other baby groups and sessions in your area.

A specialist support clinic runs weekly in each borough and members of the health visiting team can refer you directly into this service.
