Kerry Wheeler, NCT Worcester & Droitwich Branch Coordinator, said: "The free support offered by our Breastfeeding Counsellors is fantastic, it’s so important as a new parent to have reassurance and access to help with your feeding journey, and our team are here to support you, however you choose to feed your baby."

The group aims to provide non-judgmental, evidence-based support on various topics including breastfeeding, mixed feeding, formula feeding, and introducing solids.

A Bumps and Babies group will also be available, providing a safe space for babies to play and parents to socialise.

Ms Wheeler added: ""Having a baby is an amazing experience but it can also be quite isolating.

"Coming to this group gives you a reason to get out of the house and socialise with people in your local area who can understand what you’re going through.”
