Free Breastfeeding Support Groups
I currently run one free drop in group where I offer free information and support:-
- Ely MILKS Breastfeeding Support Group in Ely
Ely Milks runs weekly. These groups can get very busy and as a result the assessment and support I give will be brief and limited and is absolutely not a substitute for the more thorough assessment and support I can offer privately.
These groups should be seen as an addition to support from the NHS or from me privately and not as a replacement for it.
In terms of tongue-tie assessment I can provide enough information to help you decide if further assessment with a view to division is something you need to or wish to pursue. However, whether you then go via the NHS or private routes for this, a more thorough feeding and tongue-tie assessment should be carried out by the practitioner prior to the division. For this reason I do not offer discounts to families seen for assessment in these groups.
Please note that Ely Milks does not receive any funding from the NHS or County Council. All staff are volunteers and we have to fundraise to cover our costs for venue hire, insurance and training which amounts to around £1000 per year.
Ely Milks Breastfeeding Support Group at the Paradise Centre, Newnham Street, Ely CB7 4PQ every Monday 10.00-11.30am from 6 September 2021. See Ely MILKS Facebook page for more information. I run this group in conjunction with local breastfeeding counsellors and peer supporters and will not be there every week.
Covid 19 precautions
Please do not attend if you are unwell, have been told to isolate by Track and Trace or have had a positive Covid test within the last 10 days. Please wear a mask unless you are medically exempt and if you are able to leave partners and older children at home this will help keep the numbers down in the room so we can maintain adequate space and ventilation.
We ask for a donation of £1 from those families attending to go towards venue hire.
