Local Supports groups
All the support groups are friendly and welcoming and many are run in conjunction with local health professionals, family services and local mums. You don’t have to have a ‘problem’ to attend – just come along for a drink and a chat. Older children are also welcome.
Below are some of the local groups. Please call or check online before attending as timings and venues can change.
If you are part of a local infant feeding support group and would like your details put on here please contact the Infant feeding team at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
