Antenatal & Breastfeeding Support

We are part of Unicef Baby Friendly accreditation in Newcastle and we work together with key agencies to support families from conception to age two through the Amazing Start programme.

Working with parents and families, we provide antenatal and breastfeeding information and support through a team of trained staff and volunteers.

We offer information to enable you to make informed choices about feeding your baby.We can offer group or one to one sessions with support to achieve breastfeeding goals, guidance on returning to work and how to plan for it.

Our Breastfeeding Social Groups are relaxed, informal and friendly and offer a great way to meet other breastfeeding mums, get handy tips and an opportunity to get advice and support from a member of staff or volunteer.

Volunteers

Our Peer Supporter Volunteers are an incredibly important part of what we do.  Volunteers are trained to provide antenatal breast feeding support to mothers and families.  Find out more about the role and how to apply here.
