Breastfeeding support and information

If you are experiencing difficulties with breastfeeding, such as sore nipples, concerns about milk supply, knowing how to tell if your baby is getting enough milk, or would like some support with continuing to breastfeed when you go back to work, you can come to one of our breastfeeding support groups without making an appointment and speak to Ann Bruce, our Breastfeeding Counsellor and IBCLC. There is no charge for our support.

If you need to speak to someone before the next group, you could contact your Midwife or Health Visitor, or ring the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212.

There is also a huge amount of breastfeeding information available online. Some of it is evidence-based, and some of it isn’t, so we have put together a list of websites that we know mums find reliable and useful:

Association of Breastfeeding Mothers
