Wolverhampton Breastfeeding Support Groups
Attending a breastfeeding support and social group is a great way to meet other breastfeeding women, socialise, make friends and receive breastfeeding information and support.
NCT Breastfeeding Support Group
Our free NCT breastfeeding group runs every Thursday 10:30-12:30pm at: Action 4 Independence, Albert road, Wolverhampton WV6 0AF.
These drop-in sessions are run by an NCT Breastfeeding counsellor and our team of NCT trained peer supporters, who will be on hand to offer friendly support and information regarding breastfeeding - from pregnancy to infancy and beyond!
It is also a great place to come and meet other parents and support each other. Free to attend, free refreshments and there are toys and activities for babies and children of all ages. Partners, siblings and family members welcome, you do not need to be an NCT member to attend the group.

NCT Infant Feeding Line: We get lots of calls to our feeding line about breastfeeding and bottle feeding. Whether you need information or reassurance, give us a call on 0300 330 0700 (choose option 1). The line is open everyday from 8am to midnight, including bank holidays. A call to an 0300 number costs the same as a call to a normal home or business landline. If your phone includes free calls to landlines, calls to 0300 numbers will be part of this. You'll speak to one of our friendly breastfeeding counsellors. They've had extensive training, will listen without judging or criticising and offer relevant information and suggestions - whether you're breastfeeding, formula feeding or a bit of both.
You can also ring your Midwife, Health Visitor or Children’s Centre for advice during office hours and a midwife is available on the postnatal ward 24 hours a day.
