OBS is here to help

Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support provides local breastfeeding support in the community via five weekly in person support sessionsvideo and phone consultations, drop-in infant feeding support for families in The Leys, and monthly online antenatal breastfeeding education sessions for Oxfordshire families, facilitated by experienced IBCLCs and breastfeeding counsellors, supported by trained volunteers. We also run a friendly private Facebook group where you can quickly find support. 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 to observe our work.
