Service Description

The Tower Hamlets Breastfeeding Project offers peer support to all breastfeeding mothers in Tower Hamlets. The team is 14 breastfeeding support workers - local mothers who have breastfed and who have specialist breastfeeding support skills who speak Sylheti / Bengali and Somali as well as English.

The breastfeeding project team runs 2-hour breastfeeding antenatal classes (email breastfeeding.workshop@nhs.net to book), they visit the postnatal ward at the Royal London hospital, and they visit mothers at home to help them get off to a good start with breastfeeding.

The team runs 5 breastfeeding drop-in groups each week. Details of the groups can be found at www.facebook.com/b2bth. Just turn up. No need to book.

To speak to a member of the breastfeeding team or request a home visit call 07961 609 626. Calls will be returned by the next working day.
