Where do we cover

Lowestoft and Waveney Breastfeeding Support was initially set up to cover Lowestoft back in January 2020. When covid hit we became the only online option across the area and due to demand we have expanded our services over the years. We now cover areas including Lowestoft, Beccles, Bungay, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston. Our aim is to provide breastfeeding support to families who access the James Paget University Hospital's midwifery services, or those who could access them but choose to use another local hospitals services. 

Anyone who wishes to travel to a breastfeeding cafe is welcome to attend and access our breastfeeding support from our team of peer supporters and breastfeeding counsellors. 

However our IBCLC home visits and breast pump hire is restricted by geographical boundaries. Online allergy zooms with Kaya are available for those living out of area but for a donation to the charity.
