Mindful Breastfeeding Support
Come and join us for Mindful Breastfeeding Support in Bournemouth and Poole.
We offer two different mindful breastfeeding groups one for antenatal support and one for postnatal support, helping to teach you all you need to know about breastfeeding and give you the support from pregnancy right the way through to those first days and weeks after birth. We explain how breastfeeding works, giving you the much-needed information and guidance before birth and then we are here to support you once baby is born. We also offer a postnatal mindful breastfeeding support group,
so that you can come along and get ongoing support after baby’s birth. Mindful breastfeeding is both a breastfeeding and motherhood programme, coming together each week to share our breastfeeding journey. It can feel quite overwhelming to have a newborn and this group allows you to connect with yourself and your baby in a safe non-judgemental space, allowing you to get to know other parents and being supported on your parenting journey. You will receive breastfeeding support, relaxation techniques and mindful breastfeeding moments. This is a very friendly and welcoming class allowing you time to relax with baby. Refreshments and biscuits are served during the sessions.
