Breastfeeding peer support
If you live on the Wirral and are experiencing problems with breastfeeding your baby, or maybe you are just thinking about breastfeeding or breastmilk feeding, we are there to offer you information and support.
we're here to help
Are you thinking about breastfeeding or breast milk feeding? Would you like more information about choosing to feed your baby, or to discuss past experiences, expectations or worries about breastfeeding? If you would like to meet other mothers who are currently breastfeeding, pop along to one of our groups during pregnancy, the only criteria for our service is that you live on the Wirral.
When baby arrives
We offer support in the very early days. Our support is offered by a friendly mum who has experience, training, and time to spend with you ‘getting started’ after baby arrives. We are here to go through anything you aren’t sure about, and offer ongoing breastfeeding support. Some women can struggle getting started, but with a little support and access to up date information, mums who choose to breastfeed can do so for as long as they wish.
Breastfeeding support at home
Our support service is provided when you go home, helping to establish breastfeeding. Support is available over the phone, through home visits, or at our friendly volunteer-led breastfeeding groups.
Just a phone call away
Support and information from bump to breastfeeding, right through to weaning and introducing complimentary foods, we are here. For however long you choose to breastfeed, we are here to support you in your choice.
If you prefer, why not just pop into one of our drop in sessions! Click the link below to find a venue, day and time that suits you, there are six to choose from.
