Breastfeeding Support

We believe support needs to be accessible for everyone, we provide FREE support to parents through workshops & groups. We aim to help you feel informed, confident & empowered through your parenting journey. We are here to support you from pregnancy & beyond.

We run a weekly social group, where parents can access free infant feeding and babywearing support. Medical grade infant weighing scales are also available to use during this session. The social group is every Friday 10am-12pm at The Hive, Whitby. Booking is essential.
