Our topic for this meeting is ‘Finding your feet as a mother’

The arrival of a new baby changes so much, whether it’s your first and you are learning everything as you go, or you already have older children and are getting to know your new arrival while supporting them as they adjust to their new sibling.

Changes always bring questions, so let’s make time to chat and share tips and experiences. 

As always, there will be time for any other questions you have on the day.

Mother to mother support is at the heart of all our LLL meetings, the opportunity to meet with others going through similar things, share ideas, celebrate the high points and support each other through the less bright days. 

 We have toys to keep the small ones busy while we chat and have a drink. 

 Of course, our leaders are on hand if you have a more complex question and we have our library of books on all things breastfeeding if you want to investigate something in more detail.

All our meetings are free, but we ask that if you are able to please donate a couple of pounds to help us keep the group running. Another way to support the group is to join LLL GB, monthly membership is £2.50 and includes an electronic copy of Breastfeeding Matters, LLL GB’s very own magazine.
