The community breastfeeding team provides a range of services in Croydon, to give breastfeeding mums extra support in the community.

Croydon Health Services is working with the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative to ensure a high standard of care in relation to infant feeding for pregnant women and mothers and babies - the aim is to ensure that mothers in Croydon receive the support, information and encouragement they need to both start and continue breastfeeding. 

If you need help or support with breastfeeding your baby please ring the Croydon Breastfeeding Support Team on 020 8714 2985

or National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212 open 9.30am - 9.30pm everyday.

Breastfeeding Support in Bengali / Sylheti 0300 330 5469

Breastfeeding Support in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi 0300 330 5469

Call charges to all helplines

Calls to 0300 numbers cost no more than calls to UK numbers starting 01 and 02 and will be part of any inclusive minutes that apply to your provider and call package.

The team works closely with hospital maternity services, children’s centres and voluntary organisations.

For more help, including advice on how to start breast-feeding, see the Frequently Asked Questions section.
