Breastfeeding support groups

The team in Hillingdon want you to feel supported as you learn to breastfeed your baby and we realise that questions or problems can arise at any stage. Whether you are still expecting and have some questions about breastfeeding, or  you have had your baby and need support or to meet other mums please come along – no appointment is necessary.

You should already have the contact details for your Midwife, Health Visitor and Children’s Centre, but in addition, the information in the leaflet should enable you to find the help you need as quickly as possible.
