Breastfeeding Helplines


We offer breastfeeding support via the phone, every day of the year, 9.30am to 9.30pm.


Supporterline is run by BfN Registered Breastfeeding Supporters. Supporters are mums, who have breastfed their own babies and who have received intensive training in breastfeeding. They work on a voluntary basis and are based in their own homes.


The National Breastfeeding Helpline is a helpline run in collaboration with the Breastfeeding Network (BfN) and the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM). All the volunteers answering calls are mums who have breastfed, and all have received extensive training in breastfeeding support.  Calls are diverted to the next available  ABM or BfN volunteer.

Support is also available in Welsh via the National Breastfeeding Helpline.

The Helpline is funded by the Department of Health. 


Breastfeeding support available for Bengali and Sylheti speakers.  You may need to leave a message and one of our volunteers will call you back.


Breastfeeding support available for Tamil, Telugu and Hindi speakers. You may need to leave a message and one of our volunteers will call you back.
