About the running of the group.

I am delighted to be working in association with Heather Smith of Little Bears Forest Preschool who has kindly provided me with the venue for my group which has been running since February 2016. 

The breastfeeding support group runs between 10am - 12noon each Thursday, there is plenty of free car parking available in the front and rear car parks and there is no charge to attend this group. Please feel free to pop in.

Our Breastfeeding Matters Breastfeeding Group has been very popular for new parents to access breastfeeding support.

I am conscious that sometimes parents are having to wait some time to see me at this free drop-in group and I do apologise for this but please be reassured that if you have arrived before 12 midday I will see you. However, if you have a complex breastfeeding issue and would prefer not to wait, please contact me for a consultation in your own home when I can dedicate 1 ½ -2 hours just for you.

Osteopathy with Mary Jane Anderton.

Sadly, MJ has decided that she is no longer able to attend the Breastfeeding Matters Group but is available to provide Osteopathy consultations at the WOW Clinic on 01243 372272.

When to come to the group and what to expect.

As a reminder, in order to facilitate the smooth running of our group, I would like to make you aware of the following points:

For a parent or a parent-to-be, homeopathy offers two principal advantages. Firstly, because it is a natural system of healing using remedies sourced principally from plants and minerals, homeopathy is safe and gentle enough to be used by infants and pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Secondly, because homeopathy works by stimulating the immune system to bring about healing, it strengthens immunity to prevent the recurrence of symptoms. Homeopathy works well alone or when used in conjunction or other complementary medicines, especially osteopathy.
