Feeding Support Dorking

Breastfeeding Support in Dorking

The most common reasons that women give up breastfeeding are sore nipples and the feeling that there is not enough milk.  These, and other problems can often be overcome by changing the position of the baby at the breast, and it can be really helpful to get some information and support.  Here are some of the places that can provide support.

 

MiLK

Attended by other mums who have breastfed who can offer moral support as well as a BFC for the early weeks when you're not sure how things are going.
