Talk to a qualified breastfeeding counsellor for information and support to help you breastfeed successfully.

NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor

NCT Breastfeeding counsellors are all mothers who have breastfed their babies.They know how worthwhile and enjoyable breastfeeding can be but are also aware of the support that many new mothers need. A breastfeeding counsellor helps women to talk through their concerns and to feel comfortable with breastfeeding. They are there to listen and to offer mother-to-mother support, information and counselling where appropriate. Their role is to help build a breastfeeding mother’s confidence in her own ability to cope and to help her to make her own decisions with the benefit of evidence-based information. They are also happy to support parents who are mixed feeding or completely formula feeding.  Contact can be made by phone, or a home visit can sometimes be arranged.

To speak to an NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor please call the NCT Breastfeeding Line on 0300 330 0771.
