Breastfeeding Advice & Support

Breastfeeding rates upon discharge from hospital in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are high. There is however, a decline in breastfeeding rates in the first two weeks at home so providing continuing support to breastfeeding mothers is essential.

Visit the Real Baby Milk website(https://realbabymilk.org/)for information about breastfeeding groups around the county as well as useful information about all things to do with breastfeeding.

Specific breastfeeding enquiries can be directed to one of the following infant feeding co-ordinators:
