We are a breastfeeding friendly practice
Support on feeding your baby?
Your midwife and health visitor are both trained to help support you feed your baby. The GP is available for any medical concerns you have and can refer you to a hospital specialist if required. Please contact the practice to make an appointment if you would like to discuss this.
The NHS Inform website has information on breastfeeding and links to local support and groups.

The National Breastfeeding Helpline is a helpline run in collaboration with the Breastfeeding Network (BfN) and the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM). All the volunteers answering calls are mums who have breastfed, and all have received extensive training in breastfeeding support. Calls are diverted to the next available ABM or BfN volunteer. The Helpline is funded by Public Health England and the Scottish Government.
