Breastfeeding groups-

Perhaps you’ve been given a leaflet about our breastfeeding groups, (along with all the other leaflets you get whilst pregnant and just after baby has been born) Hopefully it’s not been popped in the recycle bin, but here it is again, just in case!

Spotlight on Astley group.

Since the sun out and spring is here, we figure it’s about time to get out and about!

As you may know we at BfT run breastfeeding groups across the borough- these are great places to come to access continued support, but you don’t need to have a problem to come along- it’s a great way to meet and chat with like minded people.

Every so often we put a spotlight on one of our groups and this spring its the turn of our Astley group. This group runs in the clinic building at Dam House- it’s a really lovely spot and a trip to group can be combined with a walk around the lake and a brew in the tea rooms. read more
