About this Event

GBSN is offering expectant mothers and their support partners a virtual “Preparation for Breastfeeding Workshop”. A small group, via Zoom, will give you the chance to meet others. It will be facilitated by a GBSN Breastfeeding Counsellor trained by the NCT.

GBSN is a charity run entirely by volunteers and does not ordinarily receive any government funding. We were pleased to be able to apply for the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund for a small, one-off government grant to run these workshops for free in 2020 and we have recently been awarded funding from the National Lottery Local Connections fund to run these workshops until March 2021.

This workshop is over two 1 hour sessions. We have new sets of dates available now - choose the first date from the list and you'll have entry to both sessions.

Please note that these workshops are designed for mothers who are 35-40 weeks pregnant.

We are taking bookings for the following sessions:

- PART 1: 13th April at 7PM and PART 2: 14th April at 7PM, facilitated by Nikki Bradley

- PART 1: 27th April at 6.30PM and PART 2: 29th April at 6.30PM, facilitated by Anny James

- PART 1: 10th May at 6PM and PART 2: 12th May at 6PM, facilitated by Anny James

- PART1: 17th May at 6.30PM and PART 2: 19th May at 6.30PM, facilitated by Lisa Cam

- PART 1: 7th June at 6PM and PART 2: 19th June at 6PM, facilitated by Anny James

- PART 1: 22nd June at 7PM and PART 2: 23rd June at 7PM, facilitated by Nikki Bradley

The focus will be on helping to get breastfeeding off to a good start, what breastfeeding looks like day by day and having self-help strategies if things don’t go to plan. We’ll concentrate on the first 10 days. You’ll get the slides and information to read beforehand and we ask you to come to the first session ready to discuss what you’ve read. Then you’ll get a chance to reflect upon this before the next session which will build upon the first.

Please make sure to check your Junk/Spam folder if you haven't received an email from us a week before the workshop date.

You can attend this workshop between 35-40 weeks pregnant.

Partners are welcome to attend (you don't need to book additional tickets), please let us know if they are planning to join you.

We are a self-funded charity, so we will send a donation link after each course and ask attendees to "donate what it is worth to you/what you can afford".
