Treasure Chest - drop in groups

If you would like breastfeeding support or information, you are welcome to come to one of our friendly and informal support groups. You will have the opportunity to chat to one of our breastfeeding peer supporters and or counsellors. It is also a chance to meet other mums. 

The groups are free and children of all ages are welcome as well as partners, family members and or friends. Please feel free to drop in any time. Drop in groups are available daily throughout York, please visit the Treasure Chest website for further information on support groups in York.

Treasure Chest volunteers also run free monthly antenatal breastfeeding workshops where pregnant women and their partners can attend to gain a better insight of how to get off to a good start in breastfeeding your new baby. 

The workshops give you the opportunity to explore the reasons why breastfeeding is the perfect way to feed your baby or babies! Covering everything from the first feed to breastfeeding in public and expressing, you will be made aware of what to expect. The group will also signpost where to find help and support in the local area just in case you need it. 

Finally, there is the opportunity to talk to a breastfeeding mum about her experiences and ask any questions you may have. Partners are welcome too so you both have the opportunity to ask questions and prepare before your baby arrives.

To Book a place email workshop@treasurechest.org.uk or visit the www.treasurechest.org.uk for drop-in support group times and other contact details.
