Welcome to BreastStart
Breast Start is a community group, here to help all breastfeeding mums in Torfaen. Breastfeeding mums run each group, and man helplines during the week. We run friendly Baby and Toddler groups which also provide breastfeeding support, if you need it, for all breastfeeding mums in Torfaen.
Meet, chat, play
Each group meets once a week in Cwmbrân or Pontypool for a chat and a cup of tea, while our children play. If you are a mother who is breast feeding your baby or toddler, we'd love to meet you. If you are having difficulties starting, continuing or stopping breast feeding we offer support, help and information. Come along and share your experiences and thoughts with other local mums.
Pregnant? Want to breastfeed?
Are you pregnant and hoping to successfully breast feed? You are also very welcome to come and join us, feel free to ask us any questions you like!
There are three reasons for breast-feeding:
the milk is always at the right temperature; it comes in attractive containers;
and the cat can't get it.
