Truro Breast Friends: Supporting You on Your Breastfeeding Journey
Choosing to breastfeed your baby can be both rewarding and challenging. It’s good to know that there are groups across the county who can support you throughout your breastfeeding journey.
Truro Breast Friends is a peer supporter led group held by mums based in the Truro area. They meet on a Monday between 12:30 and 2pm at the Trelander Family Hub in Truro.
Any mum and family giving their baby breast milk is welcome to come along for as long as they like. Antenatal mums are also welcome – it can be really helpful to gain a bit of an insight into the world of breastfeeding before your baby arrives.
The excellent facilities at Trelander Family Hub means its perfect for mums with toddlers as well as newborn babies. Pop in for support, friendship or just a general chat on how things are going with your baby.
Support covers a huge range of topics, including:
* Development stages
* and lots more!
All peer supporters are trained by Real Baby Milk and undergo DBS checks, and annual update training.
In addition to their weekly group, mums are supported 7 days a week via Truro Breast Friends’ Facebook group where mums can ask questions, connect with each other and peer supporters, and share information.
Wherever you are in the county, there’s a breastfeeding support group for you – see our clubs & classes pages or visit the Real Baby Milk website.
