Mammas breastfeeding support group

Mammas offers breastfeeding peer support to families living in Leicester, as part of Leicester NHS Healthy Together.

Mammas meets every Tuesday morning and is led by Sally Etheridge, an IBCLC lactation consultant and infant feeding specialist, and Katie, a volunteer peer supporter.  

The group is for any breastfeeding mum and her baby, wherever she lives.  There is no need to make an appointment, and it is free.

There will be a comfy place to sit and chat with other mums and with Sally and Katie, toys and activities for your baby, healthy snacks, topics of interest to new mums, and of course help, information and support for breastfeeding.

You are welcome to bring a female friend or relation. Grandmas especially welcome!

Autumn dates

Mammas will meet at New Parks Children, Young People and Family centre unless stated.  Each session has as specific topic to be discussed.
