OBS is here to help
Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support provides local breastfeeding support in the community via four weekly in person support sessions, video 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.
Book into one of our four weekly in-person sessions. On Tuesdays we are at the Barton Community Centre. On Wednesdays we are at the Kidlington Hub. On Thursdays we're at the Comper Foundation School in East Oxford. On Fridays, we're at the SOHA Housing Building in Didcot. Please book via our Calendly listings.
