It’s not always easy to breastfeed. If you’re having problems feeding your baby, the first port of call should be your midwife, health visitor or GP. You’ll find their contact details in your red book (the Personal Child Health Record you get when your baby is born).
Breastfeeding groups are a great way to get support or meet other mums. Follow these links to find your local group.
Children’s centres are there for mums, dads, babies and carers. Get in touch for breastfeeding support, or to find out about all sorts of activities and advice. Contact your local council to find your nearest children’s centre.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
