Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support aims to improve the physical and mental health of women, babies and families. We have been working with families since 2006, offering free, specialist breastfeeding support for babies of all ages in Oxfordshire. We provide a vital service in an informal and friendly environment, with evidence-based information and skilled practical help. We offer multiple weekly in person sessions and 24/7 online breastfeeding support via Facebook. See Our Services for details of our current services.

You can read more about our mission and visionwhat to expect at our drop-ins and during remote support, information for visiting student health professionals and our various reports and policies. We rely on donations, can you help?

Our History

We greatly appreciated the support of national Baby Café network and NCT during the 12 years we ran our group of franchises as Oxford Baby Cafés Group. Our rebirth as an independent local charity in April 2018 enabled us to apply for much-needed funding to continue our work. We changed our name and look but everything else about our service has continued as before.
