NCT National Breastfeeding Line

0300 330 0771 8am–10pm, every day of the year including Bank Holidays

Call to talk to a qualified breastfeeding counsellor about feeding your baby. Most mums want to breastfeed and we are experts in helping you carry out your wish. We are also here if you decide to use a little, some, mostly or all formula and would like support in doing so. We can help when the time comes to start your baby on solids or if you want to switch between breastfeeding and formula. If necessary the National Breastfeeding Line will refer you to our local breastfeeding counsellor.


In the High Peak we are lucky to have an excellent voluntary Breastfeeding Peer Support group.

Information can be found here: and on their Facebook Page.

You can contact them by ringing the helpline number of the most local volunteer group:
Buxton, Peak Dale & Hope Valley: 07768 540 951
New Mills, Whaley Bridge & Chapel-en-le-Frith: 07917 552 214
Matlock & Bakewell: 07919 013 381
Leave your name and number and a volunteer will ring you back if they can't answer the phone immediately.
