What happens at a breastfeeding support group

Breastfeeding support groups take place all around Ireland.

You may find breastfeeding support groups helpful if you're:

  • pregnant and thinking about breastfeeding
  • new to breastfeeding and have questions
  • having problems breastfeeding and need advice
  • breastfeeding and want to meet like-minded mothers

At breastfeeding support groups, mothers at the same stage as you share advice and socialise. There are also opportunities to speak with a breastfeeding expert about any questions you have.
