Telephone support

Our Infant Feeding Team contact all mum’s after the birth of their baby (after discharge from hospital) regardless of how they are feeding. We offer mums one to one telephone support.

Home visits

We also offer support for breastfeeding mums through home visits.

Breastfeeding Groups

Come along to our friendly Halton breastfeeding groups! The groups are a great place to meet other parents, make new friends, share the ups and downs of looking after a new baby, as well as get help and support from our infant feeding and family hubs teams. There’s no need to book, just drop-in to one of the sessions. Baby’s brothers and sisters are welcome too, and drinks and snacks will be provided.
