Change 4 Life

Health for All has a long history of establishing and supporting a wide range of community groups, in the belief that bringing people out of their isolation enables the sharing of mutual support and friendship.

As groups draw individuals out of their isolation, so the networks run by Health for All draw groups out of their isolation and offer opportunities for the sharing of information and joint action.

Middleton Breastfeeding Support Group

The Middleton Breastfeeding Support Group is based at Middleton Family Centre and is a weekly group that meets every Tuesday between 10am-12 noon.

The drop-in centre is set out with coffee tables, comfy sofas and play areas for accompanying toddlers.  All breastfeeding or pregnant women are welcome to drop-in.  No appointment is necessary and partners, supporters and health professionals are also welcome.

The group is facilitated by a Lactation Consultant, with support from the health visiting team, and has peer supporters on hand who have undergone volunteer training through the recognised Motherbaby Together course.

Help is available on all aspects of breastfeeding and its impact on daily life - from starting to stopping and all the variations inbetween.

For more information contact Middleton Family Centre, Sissons Road, Middleton.  Tel - 0113 2762386.
