Breastfeeding Cafés

Breastfeeding Cafés are for pregnant mums who are thinking of breastfeeding once baby arrives and mums who are already breastfeeding their baby. 

The groups are relaxed drop-in sessions offering information, guidance and support from qualified staff, breastfeeding peer supporters and other parents to help give your baby the best start in life.
