Breastfeeding Peer Support Groups

Breastfeeding Peer Support Groups are made up of local mums who have breastfed their own babies and have been trained to support you with your breastfeeding. They are available in the following areas within the Wakefield District. Please use the contacts below or to find out more about contacting a breastfeeding supporter ring Patient Advice and Liaison (PALS) on 0845 602 4832. No appointment is necessary! Please feel free to drop into any of the groups outlined below if you are pregnant or a breastfeeding mum. We know that sometimes breastfeeding can be difficult, but we also know that most breastfeeding problems can be solved and we are here to offer help, support and guidance whilst you and your baby are getting to know each other.
