Breastfeeding Support Service - Sefton


Who we are
A volunteer-led breastfeeding support service provides pregnant women and new mums with practical and emotional support when breastfeeding.

Who is our service for?
If you are pregnant or a new mum and need any support or information, you can speak to a member of staff between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday at Breastfeeding Support Sefton.

Local mums who have been trained as breastfeeding ambassadors can support you. Outside these hours, you can contact the national 24-hour national breastfeeding helpline.

Who do we work in partnership with? 
The service is managed by Netherton Feelgood Factory, a community-led, healthy living centre, operating in Sefton. It relies on ambassadors with a passion for supporting new mums working alongside midwives, health visitors and children's centres.

About the service
The service includes antenatal and postnatal care to support breastfeeding mums in a variety of ways, including group, phone, one-to-one support and social media.


You can find updates on our Facebook page which gives information about antenatal infant feeding sessions, well baby clinics and local breastfeeding support groups, which will be held in children's centres across Sefton.

Read our press release about the service.

If you would like to become a breastfeeding ambassador, please contact Gillian Hughson at the Feelgood Factory.

Where do we provide the service?
The service forms part of the Trust's healthy child programme which provides services for children and young people from birth to age 19 across Sefton.
