What to expect from OBS
You can expect a friendly welcome from our team. Partners and co-parents, grandparents, older children, other family members, friends and supporters of all kinds are very welcome at our sessions.
At our face-to-face and virtual sessions you might see and on our Facebook group you might read about babies being breastfed, chestfed, being fed by bottle, cup, nursing supplementer (lactation aid), finger-feeding, using nipple shields, and more. You might see people expressing their milk in a variety of ways. Babies might be drinking their parent's milk, donated breastmilk (find our Milk Sharing policy here) or formula milk. We know that every family’s feeding journey is unique. Whatever stage you’re at, from pregnancy onwards, and whatever feeding looks like for you, we are here to help. You can read our Mission Statement and our Equality & Diversity Policy.
Due the Covid-19 pandemic we have changed the way we work a little and have subdivided this page. Click the images below to read more about What to expect at Drop-ins, What to expect during Remote Help, Language Interpretation & OBS Case Studies.
