BABES Breastfeeding Support Group at Manton Children's Centre

Breastfeeding support session run by Peer Supporters with trained staff available. 

Our Baby and Breastfeeding Encouragement and Support groups (known as BABES groups) offer a welcoming atmosphere for all mums who breastfeed, offering tips and practical ways of helping mums to enjoy their breastfeeding experience and to help you with any concerns. 

ⓘ Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 lockdown most groups at the Children’s Centres are currently suspended.  However, we are holding some support groups and appointments in our centres and continue to offer home visits, phone, email or virtual programmes e.g. through Zoom.

ⓘ As soon as we can fully re-open we’ll post our timetables on our Facebook pages and update this website

Come along and meet other breastfeeding mums and share your experiences. It is an opportunity for you and your baby to meet new people in an enjoyable place.

Please Note: these session details are Pre-COVID, for current information please contact your local Children's Centre using the contact details below

BABES groups and peer supporters will provide support and information on:

  • Positioning and attachment
  • Tips on increasing milk supply
  • How to hand express
  • Night feeds
  • Antenatal and Postnatal breastfeeding

BABES groups also welcome mums-to-be. The group offers an idea of what to expect from breastfeeding and mums-to-be can join the interactive antenatal workshops, which provide information on baby’s development and how to get breastfeeding off to a good start.
