BfN Training and Development Hub DEMO

The BfN training and e-learning programme is developed by our specialist breastfeeding education team, alongside leading academic bodies in the UK.   

We provide independent, evidence based training and education to help build awareness of breastfeeding in the UK so that individuals and organisations can provide the best possible support to families in their choice to breastfeed.

Become a BfN volunteer and use your own experience of breastfeeding to offer support to other families in your community.
Learn more about our training to help increase your knowledge, understanding and support for breastfeeding families.
