Breastfeeding Support Groups

Breast feeding support groups are held throughout the District at Children's centres, at the FAB (Families and Babies) Shop in Wakefield City Centre and at the Oasis Cafe in South Elmsall.  These are social groups where you can meet with other breastfeeding mums and also get advice and support around breastfeeding.
