Breastfeeding Peer Support in Wakefield

The FAB Wakefield team are based alongside The Ridings Centre. To find us use the middle exit from the Ridings (near Marks And Spencers Foodhall) and cross over the road. We are happy to be a comfy space to breastfeed whilst you are out and about and if you need one to one support you can make an appointment to see a peer supporter by ringing our helpline on 01924 851901.

See you soon 🙂

The course is FREE and partners and supporters are also welcome to register. Please note this course does not cover labour and birth, you will need to discuss this with your midwife.

Breastfeeding Friendly Scheme

We want to share the good news that its OK to breastfeed in public in Wakefield and add to Wakefield’s directory of Breastfeeding Friendly Venues. To see the full list please click here.

Please tell us about anywhere you have had a great experience of breastfeeding your baby so that we can pass the message onto other new mums.

If you see this sticker in a shop, cafe or other venue it means that they have already signed up and made a commitment to being breastfeeding friendly and they will welcome breastfeeding mums.

If you have a great welcome as a breastfeeding family in a venue that doesn’t have a sticker please nominate them via this link.
