Looking for breastfeeding support or just want to chat to another mum about breastfeeding?
The Breastfeeding Network has trained peer support volunteers in your local area offering support in lots of different ways.
We currently have some specific 1:1 telephone support available for all mums living in Glasgow City and having their baby at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. The support can start at any time during your pregnancy and is available until your baby is around 4 months old. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for support or use this link https://forms.office.com/r/tG25iWVyLf Once you register your peer supporter will get in touch to chat about the type of support you might find useful.
You can also access peer support using the options below
- Come along to one of our outdoor Walk, Talk and Feed groups (Currently in Tollcross, Barshaw and Kilbarchan) or our indoor breastfeeding groups to meet other mums and get support from trained volunteers. Up to date details for when and where groups are running are on our Facebook page, or email GGC@breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk to find out more about our support and training in Greater Glasgow & Clyde or to contact a trained peer supporter for any help with breastfeeding.

All our volunteers are mums who have breastfed their own children and completed training so that they can support other families. Whatever your question or if you just want to chat to someone please get in touch.
Please be aware that emails and messages to our Facebook page will be seen by a small team of volunteers. If you contact us by email please send just a brief outline of your question or concern initially so we can support you in the most appropriate way.
