The Richmond Cottage Breastfeeding Support Group provides support to pregnant and new mums and their whanau and supporters with their breastfeeding journeys.
We meet weekly 10am-12pm, every Wednesday at the Richmond Neighbourhood Cottage, corner of Pavitt and London Streets. This is just across from the Stanmore Road New World and right beside the Richmond Park.
Trained Breastfeeding Peer Counsellors run the group and can troubleshoot most general breastfeeding questions and issues. Further referral to a lactation consultant is available.
The group runs special topics that complement our focus on positive parenting, such as First Aid, healthy gardening, birth and breastfeeding and homemade toys.
We welcome all mums – pregnant, breastfeeding, mixed-feeding or just wanting to know more about breastfeeding. Friends, partners and supporters very welcome too. And we love older siblings and breastfeeding toddlers too! We have a fantastic selection of indoor toys for them and have plans for new sand in our sandpit and an outdoor play structure for the coming summer – watch this space!
Hope to see you soon at Richmond Cottage Breastfeeding Support Group, 🙂
