In Wakefield, we are really lucky to have the support of F.A.B. & all their infant feeding peer supporters!
The below information lists all of the locations that infant feeding peer supporters are available to offer support and information to help with your breastfeeding. Please note some of these sessions are term time only and occasionally we do have to change times and venues so we recommend that you speak to FAB to check dates and timings before setting out to avoid any disappointment.
If you can’t make one of these sessions, please remember that the FAB 24hr Breastfeeding Helpline is 01924 851901 and there is a really friendly & supportive facebook group

This service provides specialist care for pregnant women and new mothers. Pregnancy and childbirth is a uniquely vulnerable time for women where there is a substantially increased risk of developing an episode of mental illness – the most likely time in a woman’s life. This service improves access to appropriate specialist interventions from specially trained staff.
The service is for women who are experiencing more severe mental health needs and can be accessed by referral from your GP or health professional.
For women with mild to moderate needs they can self-refer to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) provided by Turning Point Talking Therapies. Contact details below:
