Breastfeeding cafés

Breastfeeding cafés welcome all expectant mums and mums who are exclusively or partially breastfeeding.

Although Breastfeeding Cafés are not available during the Coronavirus outbreak you can still access local advice and support and contact the Infant Feeding Team via the links included on the  County Durham Infant Feeding on Facebook.

You can also find breastfeeding information on the Baby Buddy website.

Government guidance for pregnancy and Coronavirus can be found at Coronavirus infection and pregnancy.

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
