The Tower Hamlets Baby Feeding Service and Breastfeeding Network offer free information and support about all aspects of feeding your baby. Support is available on the wards at the Royal London Hospital, with phone and/or video calls and drop-in sessions at Family Hubs across the borough. We also offer, based on prior assessment, home visits and 1 to 1 appointments at Family Hubs. We run online and inperson ante-natal workshops on ‘Getting Ready to Breastfeed’ and ‘Colostrum Harvesting’. Team members speak several languages including Bengali, Sylheti and Somali. Do get in touch if you have any questions or need support with feeding your baby.
