OBS is here to help!
We are delighted to reopen more in person sessions from September 20th. Spaces are still limited and pre-booking is essential. Read more on our in person support page. We will continue to offer some 1:1 consultations (Zoom or phone). In busy times we may need to reserve these for families with more complex feeding issues who can't get support in other ways.
Virtual Zoom Group will continue, but will run less often and focus on our popular topic discussions. Virtual antenatal breastfeeding education sessions will continue as well. If you are a student or visiting health professional see the page about observations for the latest news about what and where you can book with us.
For families that have trouble accessing other services OBS Facilitators provide free 1 to 1 support by video or phone. The first step is submitting a Help Request. In busy times we may need to reserve these for families with more complex feeding issues who can't get support in other ways.
OBS Group Support
We run a group support session monthly on a Thursday afternoon with two themed breakout rooms to choose from each month on popular topics. See our OBS Group page for details and the link to register. For 1:1 support please see our in person support sessions or submit a Help Request for a 1:1 consultation.
OBS Facebook group
The quickest way to get support from OBS is in our friendly, private Facebook group, which is closely moderated by our team.
Online Antenatal Sessions
