Calderdale Breastfeeding Peer Support can offer breastfeeding advice and support at Halifax Baby Café, every Thursday between 1-3pm.
You can get help and advice on anything from pain to the most comfortable holds and reflux, have your baby checked for tongue tie and have them weighed. I’ve been myself and it was incredibly reassuring and friendly.
Baby Cafe Halifax is held at Halifax Central Library, Square Road, Halifax.
Friendly and supportive group for breastfeeding mums and their families.
Held in a relaxed setting, it’s hosted by peer supporters and there are activities provided for older siblings.
Free tea and coffee!
For more information, contact the Children’s Centre on 01422 250365 or ask your health visitor or midwife.
Relaxed and informal advice and support from the health visiting team. No appointment necessary.
For all pregnant women under the care of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Maternity Services.
This free two hour workshop focuses on breastfeeding as the optimum way of feeding a baby.
The session aims to help parents and babies to get breastfeeding off to the best possible start. Partners are most welcome, please book them a place.
The best time to attend is between weeks 34-36 of your pregnancy.
Book online at www.cht.nhs.uk under Services, or call 0771 751 7563.
Mums who are breastfeeding may, at times, need some extra help and support and that is where the Calderdale Breastfeeding Support Network can help.
The network is made up of women who have breastfed their own children and who work as volunteers alongside other health professionals to offer support to breastfeeding mums.
All Peer Supporters have received training and can offer information during pregnancy and friendly, non-judgemental support after baby’s birth.
