Welcome to Mamma
Mamma (Mothers Advocating Mother’s Milk Association) is a network of breastfeeding peer support groups for Portishead, Pill, Backwell, Nailsea, Long Ashton and surrounding areas.
We provide support, encouragement and information for local breastfeeding mothers through a helpline, weekly drop-in cafés, our website and Facebook groups.
We attend the local NHS antenatal classes and also offer our own ‘bumps’ breastfeeding sessions regularly at the cafés.
We aim to provide a range of friendly and accessible resources, both before and after baby’s birth, to help mums reach their breastfeeding goals.
Mamma also provides a fantastic opportunity for families to meet each other and share their parenting experiences.
Our monthly ‘bumps’ breastfeeding sessions are popular with pregnant women and their partners. These sessions run at Backwell and Portishead, alongside the usual Café Mamma drop-in group, and provide an opportunity to find out first-hand from breastfeeding mums what to expect in the early days and weeks.
We talk about the practical aspects of breastfeeding, such as what to wear and how partners can help, and discuss breastfeeding when out and about.
Check out our website here, our public Facebook pages (Portishead or Backwell, Nailsea, Long Ashton) or ask your midwife for the date of our next ‘bumps’ session.
A peer supporter is available on our helpline to provide support and information on breastfeeding.
Monday to Friday, 10am – 3pm & 7pm – 9pm,
call or text 07816 366370.
Café Mamma is a weekly drop-in café for local families, providing support, encouragement and information to breastfeeding mums. It is a place where mums can meet with other mums, as well as with trained peer supporters, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Please like our public Facebook page to receive important updates. You can also join our closed, supervised Facebook groups to chat with other breastfeeding mums, share your experiences, and ask peer supporters questions.
