Breastfeeding cafés welcome all expectant mums and mums who are exclusively or partially breastfeeding.
Cafés can be great for information, moral support, company from like-minded mums and to borrow resources. Older children are also welcome, with toys and books often being available to help keep them entertained.
No appointment needed
All pregnant or breastfeeding mums are welcome to drop in at any time during opening hours. Cafés are generally open once a week and locations vary across the county.
Find your nearest breastfeeding cafe.
Please note that some cafés run term time only or alternate weeks so please ring and check before attending for the first time.
Run by trained staff
All cafés are run by health professionals, such as health visitors, midwives, early years workers and peer supporters, all of whom have received extra breastfeeding training to offer good support.
Help with every aspect of breastfeeding
Help is available on all aspects of breastfeeding and its impact on daily life - from starting to stopping and everything in between. In a relaxed, informal atmosphere you can:
- chat to other mums and build your confidence
- get one-to-one help from specially trained staff
- look at books and leaflets
