Lancashire County Council has commissioned Families and Babies to offer breastfeeding support to women across the LCC footprint commencing on the 1st April 2018 initially for three years. We are pleased to be providing this service for Breastfeeding Promotion and Peer Support in Lancashire.

FAB has provided a breastfeeding peer support service within Central Lancashire for over ten years working within Lancashire Teaching Hospital and Ormskirk District General Hospital and across the community. We have established a valued service with mothers; their families and partner health professionals in central Lancashire and we hope to replicate this with our expansion across the rest of the area

A member of our team contacts all breastfeeding mothers referred to us soon after they come home from hospital and together you will decide what support you want from us.

Every mother’s experiences are different and some need more support than others, we can visit you at home or usually offer telephone support as a minimum to check how you and your baby are doing.

Our support is in addition to the care and support you will receive from your midwife and health visitors, but we are all working together to ensure you get the right amount of support for you and your baby.
