The Breastfeeding Network is newly commissioned from the 1st June 2022 to provide breastfeeding support services across the county of Dorset, including Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.  Our breastfeeding support services run through face to face groups as well as online through social media and are open to all parents who need feeding support – everyone is welcome.

Our well trained peer supporters provide emotional support to parents and families, support parents with positioning and attachment, and signpost parents to further information.  The peer supporters, who have all breastfed their own babies, play an important role in empowering new parents and helping them gain the confidence they need to breastfeed for as long as they wish.

In Autumn 2022 we will be offering peer support training for parents who would like to become BfN Helpers and volunteer with us.

Please see the poster for details of our current groups.
