Koala North West exists to provide children and their families with tailored practical and emotional support that improves wellbeing, reduces isolation and supports both children and caregivers to thrive.
If you live on the Wirral and are experiencing problems with breastfeeding your baby, or maybe you are just thinking about breastfeeding or breastmilk feeding, we are here to offer you information and support.
Information and support during pregnancy
Learning about the benefits of breastfeeding, how to latch the baby on comfortably and where to get help before the baby arrives can make a real difference.
Koala North West offers a range of ways to explore options and inform yourself during pregnancy.
Nest to breast sessions are available to book in your local area, as well as one-to-one support is available.
Are you thinking about breastfeeding or breast milk feeding?
Would you like more information about choosing to feed your baby, or to discuss past experiences, expectations or worries about breastfeeding?
If you would like to meet other mothers who are currently breastfeeding, pop along to one of our groups during pregnancy, the only criteria for our service is that you live on the Wirral.
When baby arrives
We offer support in the very early days. Our support is offered by a friendly mum who has experience, training, and time to spend with you ‘getting started’ after the baby arrives. We are here to go through anything you aren’t sure about and offer ongoing breastfeeding support. Some women can struggle getting started, but with a little support and access to update information, mums who choose to breastfeed can do so for as long as they wish.
Breastfeeding support at home
Our support service is provided when you go home, helping to establish breastfeeding. Support is available over the phone, through home visits, or at our friendly volunteer-led breastfeeding groups.
We are just a phone call away
Support and information from bump to breastfeeding, right through to weaning and introducing complementary foods, we are here. For however long you choose to breastfeed, we are here to support you in your choice.
