There’s a sentiment that rings true throughout all of life; a support network of family, friends and associates helps us to work through many of life’s challenges. Here at the Breastfeeding Network, we would love to have many friends as part of our support network. As we know, breastfeeding support is vital to so many mums in succeeding with breastfeeding.
You can help support the work we do by becoming a Friend of the Breastfeeding Network. You’ll be part of an exclusive group receiving regular BfN Newsletters, special offers and discounted conference tickets too.
We have revamped our friends schemes to give you greater benefits while creating more opportunities for us to support parents on their breastfeeding journeys.
Along with supporting BfN, you can choose to specifically support our valued Drugs in Breastmilk Service too.
The Breastfeeding Network’s Drugs in Breastmilk service provides support and information to thousands of families and health professionals every year. Our highly experienced and trained pharmacists offer breastfeeding support alongside evidence based information to anyone who is concerned about the effects of medication or treatments while breastfeeding.
This is your opportunity to help us secure a long term future for the service, so we can continue to provide evidence based, mother-centred, non-judgmental information around medications, procedures and treatments while breastfeeding.
