Support during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic

Please see our Coronavirus page for information about the ways we can still support you. While our drop-ins are suspended, OBS Facilitators are providing FREE 1 to 1 support by video. The first step is submitting a Help Request

New: OBS Group

During lockdown our team has been missing the interactions with and between families at our drop-ins and we've thought a lot about how we could provide support in a group setting.  After the success of our trial online OBS group session on June 18th we're going to run this group every Thursday afternoon. See our OBS Group page for details.

What we do

Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support provides local breastfeeding support in the community in weekly drop-ins in and around Oxford, facilitated by experienced IBCLCs and breastfeeding support workers, and supported by specially trained volunteer peer supporters.

Come for help with specific issues or just to hang out with other breastfeeding mothers. Drop-ins are free to attend and partners and other supporters are welcome. You can read about what to expect and how we've helped local families. Hope to see you soon!
