OBS is here to help!
Our face to face drop-ins remain suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are worried about your baby or yourself, please contact your midwifery or health visiting team, or NHS 111 (999 if it's an emergency). GPs and hospitals are also still there to support you. Please don't delay contacting them if you are worried.
One to one help is available by video and phone
OBS Facilitators are providing FREE 1 to 1 support by video or phone for more complex feeding issues. The first step is submitting a Help Request.
Your Help Request will be assessed by an OBS facilitator. We would like to be able to offer a 1:1 consultation (by Zoom or phone) with our facilitator team to everyone who sends in a help request form. If there is high demand, this may not be possible. If we are unable to offer you a 1:1 consultation, we will email you with information relevant to your feeding issues, and suggestions of other ways to find support, such as our virtual support group.
We will respond to your Help Request by email as soon as possible, usually within 12 hours and usually sooner. We can sometimes offer appointments on the day we receive the form, so please check your email! Please check your junk/spam folder if you have not heard from us within 12 hours of submitting this form.
Language Line language interpretation services are available, including for British Sign Language. There is a section on the help request form to indicate what kind of help you may need during your consultation and we will arrange this for you.
