Breast feeding support 

Although we are unable to offer face to face breastfeeding support groups and specialist clinics, we can offer support via telephone or virtual methods. We also continue to undertake home visits as part of our 0-19 PHINS service offer.

We also offer virtual specialised breast-feeding support on a 1:1 basis on a Friday. Please contact us on through our SPA on 0113 8435683 to book into this clinic or speak with your 0-7 Specialist Public Health Nurse.

If your baby is under 28 days old your Community Midwife is able to support with Breast Feeding.
