Baby Brasseries support group

Baby Brasseries are café style breastfeeding support groups around Bedfordshire with a welcoming atmosphere where breastfeeding mums can meet and support each other, have a hot drink and also find help and support with breastfeeding issues.  We welcome mums to attend with older siblings and encourage pregnant women to join us and talk about breastfeeding, meet the team and become familiar with the group.  This may help new mums to feel more confident to attend once the baby has arrived.

A Mother’s Voice

There will either be a member of the 0-19 Team or a Children’s Centre worker, as well as our Bedfordshire Breastfeeding Buddies. Within Bedfordshire there are currently 5 Baby Brasseries in Bedford Borough and 8 in Central Bedfordshire.
