NCT B.A.B.I.E.S (Babies And Breastfeeding: Information, Encouragement, Support) provides free breastfeeding support and help to all new mothers in the Basingstoke area.
Due to COVID-19 we are unable to run face-to-face breastfeeding support, but our Breastfeeding Counsellors are offering 1-1 appointments online on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, which you can book at https://www.facebook.com/HampshireBreastfeedingCounselling/
If you need support at other times including over bank holidays, the National NCT Infant Feeding Helpline is open every day 0300 330 0700 (8am to midnight every day of the year). NCT Breastfeeding Counsellors are paid to work on the line and are happy to cover the bank holidays too, so are waiting for your call. If you have to leave a message, calls are generally returned within 2 hours.
Our local breastfeeding counsellors take local calls as volunteers in their own homes. If they are not available you will be able to leave a message on an answering machine, they will aim to call you back within 24hrs - usually sooner.
