Breastfeeding friendly Kent

Evidence shows the positive effects of breastfeeding for mum and baby. Mums know what is best for them and their baby, whether they choose to breastfeed or bottle feed. We want to ensure that mums know where to turn for support if they do choose to breastfeed.

There is lots of support available, whatever choice parents make about infant feeding. Mums have told us that getting guidance from other mums is really important, as well as support from their partners, families and the wider community – including businesses and employers.

Get support

Breastfeeding can be tricky, so for more information on the services available, visit the Kent Baby Matters website or the Kent Baby Matters facebook page.

Volunteer as a peer supporter

Training is currently underway for new peer volunteers but we need even more mums to join this countywide team. For information about becoming a peer support volunteer, visit the Kent Baby Matters peer supporter page.
