    Breastfeeding Group Listings

    The Breastfeeding Network website has listed breastfeeding centres where there is a BfN Registered Volunteer working or involved with the group. We are not  able to offer a service to other organisations to enable them to list their group on our website. This is for the following reasons:-

    • We are certain that we can keep this information up-to-date 
    • BfN Registered Volunteers are trained and have  an Open College Network accredited qualification. Once trained I our volunteers are required toattend  regular Supervision and study sessions, keeping them up to date with current research and recommendations. We are not able to endorse any other training by listing groups where there is no BfN volunteer present.
    • The Breastfeeding Network aims to be an independent source of support for breastfeeding women and others involved in their care. We maintain our indepence by not accepting funding or gifts from sources which have a commercial interest in infant feeding.  Read more here
