Our Mum2Mum support groups are run by FoBF volunteers who are breastfeeding mothers just like you. Our groups offer peer support, empathy, and an opportunity to form new friendships with mums who are on the same journey as you .

Our group organisers have a small resource library of books that you can borrow as well as the information to direct you to additional support should you need a little more assistance is establishing breastfeeding or to get your journey back on track if you are experiencing any challenges. Everyone is welcome at our groups, mums to be, dads, friends & family.

We have 25 groups around the country at the moment and always welcome the setting up of new groups.
