OBS is here to help!
We are delighted to be able to reopen some in person sessions, from Friday, July 2nd, 2021. Spaces are very limited and pre-booking is essential. Read more on our new in person support page. Virtual Zoom Group, virtual 1:1 consultations and virtual antenatal breastfeeding education sessions will continue alongside the in person sessions. 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 with us.
OBS wants you!
We're recruiting new trustees. Can you help us? Click for role descriptions and application details.
We will run as usual all summer, except for the first & last weeks of August. Find out everything you need to know about how to use OBS services.
Alongside our pre-booked in person sessions, OBS Facilitators are providing FREE 1 to 1 support by video or phone. The first step is submitting a Help Request.
OBS Group Support
We run a group support session every second Thursday afternoon where you can get support from our specialist facilitators, trained volunteers and other mothers. Because we are now running some in person sessions (see above) we have reduced the frequency from weekly to every second week. Most weeks will have a themed break-out room on a popular topic. See our OBS Group page for details and the link to register.
OBS Facebook group
The quickest way to get support from OBS is in our friendly, private Facebook group, which is closely moderated by our team.
Online Antenatal Sessions
Please see our Antenatal Sessions page for details and the link to register. You can say which date you prefer when you register.
