Breast Feeding Support Groups

Breast milk has all the nutrients that your baby will need for the first six months of life. Not only does breast milk protect your baby from infection, it also may protect you from some illnesses later in life.

We know that many mums start breastfeeding, but sadly may find the first few weeks difficult and give up before they wanted to.

A breastfeeding support group may help you if you are having problems, or just need some extra support and advice. With the right support and advice, there are not many challenges that cannot be overcome and you will also have the opportunity of meeting other mums and their babies!

We have breastfeeding support groups in most areas in or near West Hertfordshire and we would love to see you and your baby!
