Breastfeeding Groups in Leeds

**Covid19 Update September 2021**

The groups below are currently not running, but please contact Leeds Bosom Buddies or La Leche League Leeds (details below) for help and support with breastfeeding, or contact your Health Visitor. If you do not know who your health visitor is, contact the Leeds Community Healthcare 0-19 Integrated Nursing Service. Contact details can be found on our Family Health services page here.

 

 

Although we are unable to offer face to face breastfeeding support groups and specialist clinics, we can offer support via telephone or virtual methods. We also continue to undertake home visits as part of our 0-19 PHINS service offer.

You are able to access our virtual breast-feeding support group held on Tuesdays at 1.30pm via Zoom. This group is facilitated by a 0-19 Family Health worker and is an opportunity to meet breast feeding parents. If you would like to join this virtual group please email lcht.0-19breastfeedinggroup@nhs.net to book your place.

We also offer virtual specialised breast-feeding support on a 1:1 basis on a Friday. Please contact us on through our SPA on 0113 8435683 to book into this clinic or speak with your 0-7 Specialist Public Health Nurse.

If your baby is under 28 days old your Community Midwife is able to support with Breast Feeding.
