Free monthly breastfeeding support group meetings in various locations around Oxfordshire.
LLL meetings are open to anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding/lactating/planning to lactate. Babies and young children who need to be with you are always welcome. Whatever age and stage you’re at, come to ask questions, share your experiences or just hang out with others – you don’t have to have a problem to come! You are always welcome to bring questions about other aspects of breastfeeding outside any given meeting topic. See http://llloxford.org.uk for meeting information.
These friendly, free sessions look at: how to get feeding off to a great start, how to get back on track if you run into difficulties, what to expect in the early days, and where to find help and support. Evening and daytime sessions available. Partners welcome. See http://llloxford.org.uk/index.php/antenatal for more information.
These occasional daytime meetings in East Oxford are aimed at those who are already breastfeeding beyond a year or who are considering doing so. See http://llloxford.org.uk/index.php/toddlermeetings for more information.
Local LLL Leaders (breastfeeding counsellors) also offer breastfeeding support by phone, email and via Facebook. Contact information can be found at http://llloxford.org.uk/index.php/contact-us
