Islington Breastfeeding & Weaning Peer Support Project has a team of friendly and experienced Breastfeeding Supporters and Helpers supporting Islington parents and babies every day in the postnatal wards at both the Whittington and UCH hospitals.
We also contact mums on discharge from hospital to offer telephone support in the first few days at home with your baby.
We run seven friendly and welcoming breastfeeding drop in groups at Children’s Centres across the borough each week where you can just turn up and see a breastfeeding supporter and meet other mums and babies. You can find your nearest group by clicking here. We also offer home visits to mums who find it hard to get to a group in the early days.

Additionally we have Peer Supporters working alongside the health visiting teams at some of the weekly local baby clinics.
