** As a result of the Government’s announcement on 17th March 2020, all BfN face to face activities will be suspended until further notice. At this uncertain time, we know how important it is that families are still able to access good quality, up to date breastfeeding information and support and so to help ensure this happens so we will be offering more telephone support locally and increasing the numbers of volunteers trained in phone support. We will also be offering social media and email support locally.
You can find details about what support is available in your area by searching for your local BfN project Facebook pages or on our website.
The National Breastfeeding Helpline is open as usual from 9.30am-9.30pm 7 days a week on 0300 100 0212 or you can access web chat here https://www.nationalbreastfeedinghelpline.org.uk/
More details can be found on our website https://www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/coronavirus/ **
In some areas BfN Registered Volunteers, who have all breastfed their own babies, may help run or may be involved in Breastfeeding Drop-In groups. The groups are a great way to meet other breastfeeding mums living in your area and can provide face to face support if you need it. You can read about the things some mum’s had to say about the drop-in groups below.
If you are searching on a mobile phone and you cannot see a list of details such as address and opening times please try clicking the icons which appear on the map.
If you are not able to find what you are looking for in the Drop-In group locator below then please contact us on on 0300 100 0212 and we may be able to help.
In addition, there may be a Peer Support project in your area. Peer Support projects can offer additional levels of support. Check here to see if there is one in your area.
Please note that the opening times and availability of the groups can sometimes change at short notice therefore it is advisable to contact the venue if possible before going along for the first time.
