The Cafe runs from 10am – 12noon on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month.
The Café provides an opportunity to discuss concerns and access support, but also to relax, breastfeed in comfort and make new friends. It is the ideal environment for those first public breastfeeds and to meet other breastfeeding families. Research has shown us that mother to mother peer support is crucial for breastfeeding. Us mums need each other!
It is also ideal for pregnant mothers to attend to gain breastfeeding information and to begin creating their support network in readiness for post birth.
There is no charge for the Café or the support offered during this time. Donations are welcome, which will all go towards refreshments for the Café provided by Rowan House. Self service teas, coffees and cold drinks will be available, along with some tasty treats.
The No Milk Like Mama’s team will be on hand to answer questions and offer support as much as we are able within this setting.
Please note that this is a Peer Support setting. If further in-depth support is required (eg. tongue tie/RLF referral), then a private consultation will be more appropriate than the Café setting to complete this. We are unable to offer free RLF referrals from the Café, as this involves considerable administrative work in addition to assessment.
A couple of doors up from Rowan House is the Social Club with lots of parking and Rowan House have permission to use this space. If you find the Rowan House carpark full, please don’t turn back, but use the Social Club carpark.

We look forward to meeting you!
To breastfeed you only need your breasts and your baby, but some ‘stuff’ can help! If you have any nursing bras, tops, breastfeeding friendly clothes or equipment you would like to donate, please get in touch! Any donations will be available to mothers who attend the Breastfeeding Support Café
