Supporting parents with infant feeding in the Antenatal and Postnatal period.

To promote, protect and support breastfeeding and safe formula feeding.

We support parents to be, new parents and their infants.

  • Need to fall under Manchester Health Visiting Team
  • We offer support to all families with a Manchester postcode, however services offered vary depending on the area North vs Central & South.

We offer client centred, evidence-based research to support optimal outcomes for parents and babies supporting them to reach their personal feeding goals.

Preferably an antenatal contact to prepare for feeding baby, followed by early support after delivery with ongoing support as and when needed. Open access to feeding support.

We offer support via few different channels, phone support, home visits, drop in clinics, virtual support group, educational workshops (antenatal session, diary free weaning).

Self referral across the city, but services offered vary depending on postcode.
