Barnsley Infant Feeding Service

During the COVID-19 period, we are continuing to provide a service but we have had to make a few temporary changes to how we do this, face to face groups are suspended until further notice but you can still contact the team in a number of ways. 

  • Call the single point of access phone line on 01226 775700 Monday - Friday
  • Facebook Instant Messaging via Barnsley Infant Feeding Service  *This facility is responded to Monday to Friday 9 am - 4 pm, (except for bank holidays).

 

What?

Some mums and babies get the hang of breastfeeding straight away, but some may take a little more time. We provide expectant parents and new families with support around breastfeeding, infant feeding and building early close loving relationships.

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, why not come along to one of our breastfeeding groups.

You’ll have an opportunity to meet your Infant Feeding Worker and other families to share experiences, discuss concerns, gain confidence in feeding out and about and make friends for life.
