Online Breastfeeding Support

Online Breastfeeding Support

We are working harder than ever supporting mothers with breastfeeding now they have lost the postnatal home visits.

Breast milk will offer some protection to your baby against many infections. The mum will make antibodies which are then passed on through the breastmilk to the baby. We believe that breastfeeding support can make a huge difference if mums are struggling.

Maria Yasnova, Penny Heywood (both Sunflower Centre affiliated LCs) along with their colleague Sue Freeman are facilitating Zoom-based Deptford Breastfeeding Support groups on a weekly basis on Tuesdays 10-12. Anyone who wishes to join needs to fill out this Facebook form. All three of us are International Board of Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC).

Maria is offering regular antenatal classes and weekly breastfeeding support sessions on behalf of La Leche League. For more information on these please email

Penny is offering 1-1 free phone support for mothers in Brockley who are struggling with breastfeeding 10.00-12.00 Mon, Wed, Thur & Fri. In addition she is offering Skype/Zoom Breastfeeding Consultations - £25 for 30 minutes, £45 for an hour.

Local mothers can email, call or text us for breastfeeding support as La Leche League Breastfeeding Counsellors.
All of the above is free.

Breastfeeding if you have, or suspect you have Covid-19
If you have confirmed Covid-19 or have symptoms you should take all possible precautions to avoid spreading the virus to your baby, including washing your hands before touching your baby, sterilising any breast pump or bottles and washing your hands after changing their nappy.  

If available, wear a face mask while feeding your baby at the breast. If you are too unwell to breastfeed you may still be able to express milk for your baby. 

Pump equipment and bottles need to be sterilised according to manufacturers instructions.
