Breast feeding support

Breastfeeding ‘Cafe’ at Carmenta 


Update January 2022

🌸Our free drop in Breastfeeding ‘Cafe’ is running on Thursdays 1.30-3pm🌸


It is just drop in, so no need to make a appointment.🌸
A maximum of 8 parents is preferred for adequate social distancing- so if more parents turn up, partners may need to leave in order for mothers to have priority.🌸
Please bring your own drinks, and cushions if needed. We will provide biscuits or cake!🌸
The Breastfeeding Cafe is a lovely space to practise breastfeeding out and about and have a chat with other mums.🌸
Cathy and/or Julie will be available for you to discuss any feeding issues.  Unfortunately, we are NOT able to provide tongue tie/function assessments during the session as more time is required to assess and discuss appropriately. 🌸

The ‘Café’ will be run following strict covid rules regarding thorough cleaning and use of PPE.   We do ask that you wear a mask for everyone’s safety and follow socially distancing guidelines. Please ensure that you use the hand sanitisers provided and follow our one way system once inside the building.🌸
(If you or any member of your household has experienced and Covid symptoms or tested positive within the past two weeks, please do not come to the Centre.)🌸

We are so excited to be able to welcome you all!🌸

If you are struggling with complex issues you may prefer to book an individual Zoom session £60 for an hour. Or a face to face consultation £95 per hour – this includes a research based oral assessment for your baby.

Our Carmenta Breastfeeding Facebook page has up to date information, articles and videos. And our Carmenta Life Facebook page has Julie’s  ‘lockdown’ vlogs on breastfeeding tips.

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.

There is no parking at the Centre. The nearest parking is behind Tesco or on the high street- pay and display.

Thank you

Cathy and Julie
