Breastfeeding

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, why not come along to one of our breastfeeding groups.

Some mums and babies get the hang of breastfeeding straight away, but some may take a little more time. Our breastfeeding groups are informal. You’ll have an opportunity to meet your Infant Feeding Worker and other families to share experiences, discuss concerns, gain confidence in feeding out and about and make friends for life.

We have a number of breastfeeding groups that you are welcome to attend, please see our list of local venues.

You can also find a list of local venues that all have the Barnsley Breastfeeding Welcome Here Award.

If you own a local business why not join the Barnsley Breastfeeding Welcome Here scheme.

You can also pick up your healthy start vitamins from the main family centres.  All women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should take vitamins as part of their daily routine.
