Breastfeeding support is available

This World Breastfeeding Week (1-7 August), we are working with Sefton Council to reassure new parents that there is still infant feeding support available during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and that group sessions and one to one support are now back up and running.

Led by volunteers, the Sefton Breastfeeding Support Service provides practical and emotional support to expectant and new mothers – call 0151 291 8010 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

There are two group drop-in sessions that new parents or pregnant women can attend, and these are held in Southport and Netherton:

  • Friday 1-3pm, Netherton Feelgood Factory
  • Thursday 9.30am – 11.30am, The Hart Space, Southport
