Breastfeeding Groups and Support in Leeds (Details correct Aug 18)
What is a Breastfeeding Group?
These groups are all run slightly differently; however, you can rest assured you will always be welcomed by a friendly face and refreshments! All group leaders undertake breastfeeding training so that they can offer support and signpost if you need specific help. These groups are open to all breastfeeding mums.
What is a Breastfeeding Peer Support Group?
These groups are run by trained breastfeeding peer supporters. Peer supporters are mothers who have themselves breastfed and have undertaken a training course. They are not able to give specific advice but can offer suggestions and sign-post to the most appropriate and timely help. Any breastfeeding mum is welcome!
Breastfeeding counsellors have all breastfed and had extensive training. They offer free support, information and practical help. They offer phone support and home visits.
