Breastfeeding (Community)

What we do

Breastfeeding is a great way to get your baby off to the best start. It has all the nutrients your baby needs for the first 6 months, boosts a baby’s ability to fight illness and infection, and helps protect mums against breast and ovarian cancer, and much more.

We provide breastfeeding services across South Warwickshire, North Warwickshire and Rugby.

Early breastfeeding support service

This service, provided in the North of the county and Rugby, offers support to breastfeeding mums on discharge from hospital, up until the baby is 28 days old. It is free and can be booked via a heath visitor or midwife.
