Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters’ Network (GBSN) is a charity dedicated to supporting breastfeeding mothers. We currently run 7 weekly breastfeeding support groups in Gloucestershire:
Each group is run by volunteer peer supporters, all mums themselves who have breastfed their own babies and have completed a course in breastfeeding peer support. Each group is also attended by a Breastfeeding Counsellor.
Our groups are very friendly and we really encourage pregnant mums to come and see us before they have their baby. Coming with a newborn is so much easier if you already know where you’re coming to and what we’re about!
You don’t need to have a problem to come and see us either. It’s a great place to meet other mums, have a cup of tea and chat while the babies play, feed or sleep.
Each group also has a huge library of information leaflets and books which are free to borrow on a number of parenting topics. We also sell Bravado nursing bras and tank tops at amazing prices.
Please come and see us soon.
