We have put together some useful advice and support for breastfeeding mothers. If you have queries, questions, or any difficulties with breastfeeding or expressing, then talk to your nurse, doctor, or health and social care professional. We have listed a number of useful resources for breastfeeding Mothers on this page.

You are welcome to breastfeed your child anywhere on the grounds of our hospitals. However, if you would like a private breastfeeding or expressing space please ask a member of staff for assistance.
