Need breastfeeding support?

We are here to support you to reach your breastfeeding goals.
We can support you face to face or online

Book a face to face appointment

At our group at Ross St Community Centre, you can get free face-to-face practical and emotional breastfeeding support from our accredited breastfeeding counsellors and IBCLCs.

Fridays 12.30am-2.30pm (pre-booked appointment only)
Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge CB1 3UZ
On-street parking (please allow time for parking).

Please send a message to our Facebook page or email us on to book an appointment. We will chat with you first online or on a video call.

Please note we are not able to weigh babies or provide medical advice and we may direct you to your midwife, GP or Health Visitor following your appointment.

We’re sorry that we are only able to see you if you have an appointment arranged.

What happens at my breastfeeding appointment?

You will be seen by one of our breastfeeding counsellors and you will be able to explain what’s going on for you with breastfeeding, ask your questions and get practical support and information. We will also make sure you know where to find additional information or any further skilled support if needed. Your appointment is a 30 minute appointment.

If you have booked an appointment, and no longer need it or are unable to make it, please let us know ASAP, as we always have a waiting list and can offer the appointment to another family who needs it.

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.

We are continuing to offer online support 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.
