Welcome to Breastfeeding Network Sandwell Project.  We hope that this page will be used to share information about breastfeeding support in Sandwell, what we are up to and how to contact us should you need support.

We can offer the following support to Sandwell families (all of which is free):

  • Antenatal classes
  • Phone or text support
  • Home visits
  • Breastfeeding Support groups

As this is a public site we will not be using it to give breastfeeding support for individual cases.  If you need breastfeeding support please call or text the BfN Sandwell Team on 07505 775357.  You can also call the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212.

If you are a breastfeeding mum then why not come along to one of our support groups?  Our friendly Peer Supporters are on hand if you need any information or support.  These groups are also a great way of getting out and about and meeting other local breastfeeding mums.  Click “Find a Drop-in” at the right of this page.
