Antenatal & Breastfeeding Support

We offer a 12 week in depth training course for local women with breastfeeding experience to support local families through their pregnancies and breastfeeding journeys.


During the antenatal period, we match volunteers with families to offer support and information during pregnancy.


If the families choose to breastfeed we can offer support via telephone, online virtual group or face to face in our social groups.


Volunteering opportunities include:


  • One to one support with an antenatal family
  • Attending breastfeeding social groups and offering peer support
  • Making calls to women when breastfeeding has been established
  • Making content for social media


Our training starts in April and will be on a Thursday from 9:30am - 1pm.

Skills

  • All of our volunteers must have breastfeeding experience, either from feeding a baby from the breast directly or from expressing breastmilk to feed a baby
