Bump To Breast

About the project

We are a breastfeeding group-support project for mothers. While our face-to-face groups are not running at the moment due to Coronavirus, we are connecting together using social media, with regular live streams on Facebook (Bump to Breast) providing interesting and useful breastfeeding information and a very popular volunteers training course.

Our project is funded by A Better Start Southend, whose target wards are families with children under 4 in Westborough, Victoria, Milton, Kursaal, Shoeburyness and West Shoebury Wards. However, due to the current circumstances we are offering support to all Southend residents and would really encourage you to get in touch with us if you have any breastfeeding questions at all!

How we can help

We know that breastfeeding improves health outcomes for babies in many ways and is particularly important during this Covid-19 pandemic. Breastmilk contains antibodies which protect babies against viruses and bacteria, as well as providing a wide range of other health benefits. In addition to this, breastfeeding removes the worry for families about sourcing formula milk when it may be in short supply. We are able to support families with mixed feeding, increasing milk supply and expressing too, too, so that they do not need to be so reliant on formula milk supply.

"I cannot thank the wonderful pair of fabulous ladies enough, for their welcome, listening ear, support and advice that I received instantly from them both. The relief I instantly felt from their advice and support is priceless! I'd highly recommend the group to all."
