NCT Breastfeeding Counsellors are available to mothers who want to contact them and share their problems. They are trained to listen to mothers, to help them overcome their concerns, whether large or small and to feel comfortable with breastfeeding. They are sensitive to mothers' needs and are supportive to all mothers whether they choose breastfeeding or ultimately decide to bottle feed. They do not give advice, they will not tell mothers what to do, but they will help them, through counselling and by passing on information, to make their own decisions.
Here in Swindon mothers have access to two NCT Breastfeeding Counsellors:
Elena (01793 871024)
They are available to talk on the phone and are also happy to arrange a home visit if the mother wishes. You don't need to be a NCT member to contact them, and the service is completely free of charge. However, if you find that you have called them and you would like to show gratitude, you could consider becoming an NCT member or you could make a small donation to the local branch. If you would like to make a donation please email firstname.lastname@example.org
