FAB Peer Support Community Sessions

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
