CRIBS: Breastfeeding SupportGroups & Activities
- Under 5s
Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters’ Network offers breastfeeding support to mother's in the community and sessions are hosted by a qualified breastfeeding counselor as well as trained peer supporters. Mothers are welcome to come along even if they are not experiencing trouble with feeding but wish to meet like minded mothers in their local community. We have refreshments available and there is no cost to attend but donations are grateful received and help us to run our groups
09:30 – 11:30
CRIBS is a very welcoming and friendly support group. Situated in a large church hall, there is a seating area where you can chat with other mums and peer supporters. There are soft mats and soft toys for babies located within the seating area so your baby is always close by. Away from the seating area (but within view) is space for toddlers and older children to play – with a wide range of toys to play with. Older children are always welcome, as well as Dads, Grandparents etc. Hot and cold drinks (with biscuits!) are always available.
There are plenty of parking spaces in the church car park and you can bring your pushchair into the church hall (good for nap time).
We stock a wide range of nursing bras which can be fitted in privacy by a trained peer supporter. We have a good selection of books you can borrow, which cover various aspects of parenting.
