Breast feeding support

Baby feeding Cafe at Carmenta 

FREE drop-in breastfeeding support sessions on Thursday afternoons 1.30pm – 3pm, in the form of an informal ‘cafe’ environment.

Valuable breastfeeding and bottle feeding  support from Lactation Consultants Julie Carden and Cathy Johnson who are available at these sessions to chat and guide you while feeding your baby. Also meet other mums for friendship and support over a hot drink and biscuits.

We are happy to answer your baby feeding queries where possible via email breastfeeding@carmenta-life.co.uk. Please use this email for any information or concerns about feeding your baby and we will do our best to give you a prompt reply.  On some occasions it may be necessary to arrange a one to one home visit or visit to the centre.

Home visits

Home visits or private consultations at Carmenta Life for breastfeeding support, are also available with our Lactation Consultants by arrangement.

Information on prices of home visits can be found here.

For more information please get in touch  breastfeeding@carmenta-life.co.uk

Please note, our Baby Feeding Cafe is non funded and run by volunteers. We only ask for a small donation to the local Human Milk Foundation.

We endeavour to run the Cafe all year except for bank holidays. However, if you are travelling a distance, please phone to ensure we are available, as occasionally we have commitments elsewhere.

Thank you

Cathy and Julie
