Welcome to ekbaby: the east Kent infant feeding website

When you are pregnant or have a new baby there are loads of people giving you help and advice.

Sometimes knowing where to go to get specific breastfeeding information and help can seem confusing.

You may be the first breastfeeder in your family for generations, and even if everyone is proud of you they might not know a lot about breastfeeding.

These are some of the people who can help you as well as family and friends:

  • Midwives

  • Health|Visitors

  • Doctors

  • Lactation Consultants

  • Volunteer peer supporters

  • Volunteer qualified breastfeeding counsellors

  • Staff at your local Children's Centre

 

 

 

 

This site  provides information on infant feeding for families and staff in east Kent.

It has information on local services provided by health visitors, midwives, children's centres, and voluntary organisations. It supports the Baby Friendly Initiative in east Kent.
 
We also include national helplines and websites that you might find useful.
 
This website is provided by PSBreastfeeding, CIC and is funded by NHS Eastern and Coastal Kent.


Your feedback is important to us, so if you have any comment please contact website@psbreastfeeding.co.uk

The Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health strongly encourages breastfeeding as there are clear, proven health benefits to both the baby and mother......... Nothing comes close to breast milk for the advantages it offers, and we hope that more mothers will make it their first choice for infant feeding.”
