​                           Every Monday 10.30am to Noon 
​           Informal Drop in Sessions for Breastfeeding and Pregnant Mums

Bosom Babies Breastfeeding Support members are all volunteers who have had training from, and work alongside, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust.

The groups are informal, drop in's for any  breastfeeding mum or pregnant woman interested in breastfeeding.  They offer non judgemental support to mum's in a relaxed and friendly environment.  They help with common breatfeeding problems and refer onto the Specialist Infant Feeding Team where issues are more tricky.

You don't have to have a problem with breastfeeding to attend though, there is a huge social element and lots of mum's make great friend's at the groups.  The groups are completely free to attend but there will be a 'Bake Week' fundraiser once a month where donations to the library are welcome in exchange for home baked treats.

They are hoping to recommence in the Library in June and we will keep you updated here and on Facebook.
