Breastfeeding isn’t always easy but there are so many benefits, which is why doctors recommend baby is breastfed to at least 6 months. If you’re struggling, need motivation, have questions or simply want to meet other mums to talk to about breastfeeding then we’re here to help.

There are so many ways you can get help in Medway. You can go to a local Bump to Breastfeeding drop-in to meet new and expectant mums in your area who are breastfeeding and talk with the peer supporters who can answer any questions you may have.
