We’re sorry that we are only able to see you if you have an appointment arranged. As soon as we are able, we will return to being a drop-in where you don’t need to book.

What happens at the breastfeeding drop-in?

You will be seen by one of our breastfeeding counsellors, and will be able to explain what’s going on for you with breastfeeding, ask your questions and get practical support and information.

We can get very busy, so there may sometimes be a wait to be seen – but you will be seen by a breastfeeding counsellor and be given the time and support you need. We will also make sure you know where to find additional information or any further skilled support if needed.

We also offer free video calls and online support from our skilled breastfeeding counsellors.

Cambridge Breastfeeding Alliance online drop-in runs four mornings a week via our private Facebook group: Monday, Wednesday and Saturday 9am-12pm. Or you can message the Facebook page, or send us an email via our contact form.

During the pandemic, we moved all our support online and in one year supported over 500 families on video calls. We are continuing to offer this three mornings a week as it can be a really effective way of helping you to overcome breastfeeding struggles from the comfort of your own bed or sofa.

You can join our closed Facebook group, where we post links and articles and you can post asking for support.
