Yes! We welcome bumps! Please come along to the drop in session, Thursdays 10.00am – 12.00noon at The Muse. Have a well-deserved cuppa and have a chat to mums with a wide range of breastfeeding experiences.

I am mixed / combination feeding. Can I come to the group?

Yes we have had several mums that have successfully mixed breast and bottle

I am bottle feeding, but I am enthusiastic about breastfeeding, am I welcome at the group?

We are more than happy to give information about breastfeeding to anyone that is interested.

I am a dad / dad to be. Can I come to the group?

We love to see dads! We believe that support from dads is very important for a successful breastfeeding experience. Don’t worry, we’re all very friendly and will do our best to make you feel comfortable.

I’m not comfortable feeding in public / don’t want people to see my breasts. Is this going to be a problem?

You won’t have to do anything that will make you feel uncomfortable. We can offer advice without observing a feed. Mums do feed their babies at the group but you should feel under no pressure to do so.

Can I bring my older children to the group?

Yes, older children are welcome.
