Whichever way you feed your baby you will be welcome at all NCT events.  Sometimes though, if you are breastfeeding, expressing or combined feeding we recognise that you may need a bit of extra help. 

Breastfeeding Counsellors

All NCT Breastfeeding Counsellors have breastfed, are trained to Diploma standard and give out the latest, evidence based information.

If you would like to talk to a local Breastfeeding Counsellor, please ring our Enquiries number on 0844 243 6227 Option 1 and they will put you in touch with the nearest one to you.

There are also several telephones lines offering Breastfeeding Counselling:

NCT Breastfeeding Line on 0300 33 00 771 from 8 am to 10 pm, 7 days a week

Association of Breastfeeding Mothers 08444 122 949 from 9.30 am to 10.30 pm every day

Bumps & Babes 

If you don't need assistance, but would just like to chat to other Mums who share your experiences of feeding your baby, why not go along to a Bumps & Babes group?  These are small friendly groups where you can find Mums who have formula fed, breast fed or both.  Bumps & Babes are for parents to be and existing parents with children up to the age of 4.  

Please see our events section for more details.
