Breastfeeding mother and baby

Local breastfeeding support

Our local breastfeeding counsellors volunteer their time. 

  • Sherry Bevan on 07905 826267 (if she can't get the phone when you call, leave a message and she'll get back to you)
  • Kate Cameron on 020 8658 7671
  • Suzanne Croft - 07980 725102 or

These are all drop-in groups – no appointment required. The breastfeeding drop-ins are run by Oxleas Health Visitors and Community Nursery Nurses. The term-time drop-in at Orpington Methodist Church and the Baby Cafes are run by NCT Breastfeeding Counsellors. 

**In line with current Government guidance, all local breastfeeding support groups are currently closed.** 

As an interim measure, local BFCs Sherry and Suzanne are offering 'virtual' home visits using Zoom.

To book a virtual home visit, please message 

  • Sherry on 07905 826267 or
  • Suzanne on 07980 725102  

There is no charge. You do not need to be an NCT member.
