We have a number of resources for parents and new parents, as well as courses, social events and counsellors.
Wimbledon Breastfeeding Drop In - every Thursday
We are happy to be able to offer Mums a Breastfeeding Drop-in. The drop-in is run by experienced NCT breastfeeding counsellors, and is held 10am-12.00pm every Thursday at the Gooseberry Bush Studio, Gooseberry Cafe, 115 Kingston Road, SW19 1LT. There's no need to book, it's run on a first-come first-served basis so just drop by and make use of this fantastic service. The venue has a buggy park and baby-changing facilities.
It is with much regret that we now must start asking Mums who attend to subsidise the service and there is therefore an expected £20 donation as a contribution towards funding the drop-in. A donation of £10 is expected for any subsequent visits. Unfortunately this is now our only option to prevent closure whilst we try and raise more funds.
If you have used the Drop-in, or you wish to be able to use the service in the future, please donate using our JustGiving link.
First Aid Courses
If you are expecting your first baby, or already have a child/children, taking a first aid course is a great way to gain confidence in how to handle incidents that may occur in or out of the home.
We run regular courses throughout the year which are open to everyone (members and non-members, singles and couples). Each course is limited to a maximum of 12 people and costs £55 per person or £100 per couple. Please see First Aid for further information on booking.
