a breastfeeding mother receiving support from a breastfeeding counsellor

Baby Café is a free breastfeeding support drop-in ran by a qualified NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor. 

The Baby Café is one of our most used and most important services locally. We know that babies and their parents need this service, therefore we keep running it in a different, more convenient format.

Introducing our virtual breastfeeding support service to temporarily replace our in-person Balham Baby Café so we can all stay at home and stay safe.

The service runs via two platforms (WhatsApp and ZOOM) providing around the clock support to all who need it.

Our new WhatsApp group provides a safe space to share any feeding issues or concerns you might have and ask for help from one of our experienced and highly trained NCT Breastfeeding Counsellors any time during the week. The messages are monitored continuously and the breastfeeding counsellors will get back to you as soon as they are available.

Our Zoom session runs every Monday morning from 10am where you will receive one to one support from one of our amazing Breastfeeding Counsellors. These sessions also provide a platform to "meet" other parents with feeding concerns, questions and share your experiences with them.

For safety, we share the links to the WhatsApp group and  Zoom session in our closed FB group!
