Breastfeeding peer support

If you live on the Cheshire 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.


Antenatal support

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?

Koala North West knows the importance of getting as much information about becoming a parent before the baby arrives. Give us a call to discover more about the services we offer.

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.

Face to face breastfeeding groups are now back up and running. For support or to meet up with other local mummies, please give the office a call to secure your place.
