Breastfeeding Support and Social groups

BF-group.jpg

Attending a breastfeeding support and social group is a great way to meet other breastfeeding women, socialise, make friends and receive breastfeeding information and support.

Whether you have a breastfeeding query or would just like to meet other mothers to share experiences, the groups listed below are relaxed and informal and are open to any pregnant or breastfeeding women. Always a friendly welcome and sometimes a drink on offer too!

You might be able to take along older children also – call in advance for details.
