The specialist team at Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support offer a range of free virtual breastfeeding support options for local families:
- Twice a month virtual antenatal sessions, for expectant parents to learn the basics of breastfeeding.
- Support from the team, volunteers and other mothers in a friendly private Facebook group, for those in Oxfordshire at any stage of pregnancy/breastfeeding/lactation. On Monday mornings 11:00am to 12:00pm team members are available online for real-time Facebook chat.
- One to one consultations by Zoom or phone, for more complicated breastfeeding problems.
The OBS team are delighted to partner with other organisations including The MotherKind Cafe, Botley Bridges and Maple Tree Wheatley Children’s Centres to offer feeding support in their virtual groups for new parents.
