BAPS Breastfeeding and Peer Support


BAPS Breastfeeding and Peer Support:
Hesters Way Children’s Centre, next to the Primary School, Dill Avenue, Cheltenham GL51 0ES.
10-noon every Tuesday.

Specialist Worker: Elizabeth Mayo




BAPS offers breastfeeding information, support and encouragement to families at every stage of their breastfeeding journey. Whether you are pregnant, getting started with breastfeeding, experiencing difficulties or wishing to wean, we are here for you.

Our group is run by breastfeeding mothers, for breastfeeding mothers. All our peer supporters have breastfed their own babies and taken a course in breastfeeding peer support and our specialist worker, Elizabeth Mayo, is a NCT breastfeeding counsellor.

We aim to provide a friendly, social place to meet, chat and get information and support if you require it. You donʼt need to have a problem to come to our group. Many mothers just want to meet others and relax with a cup of tea in a welcoming place.

Although most people attending our group are mothers with babies, we also welcome partners, grandparents and friends who are supporting a breastfeeding mother or mum-to-be.

Our group also carries:

    A free library of books and DVDs on breastfeeding and other parenting topics
    Bravado nursing bras and vests to try and buy
    A huge amount of information to take away with you on pretty much any issue to do with

We really welcome pregnant mothers to our group. Many of our mothers agree that they have benefited from coming to BAPS before having their baby. Leaving the house with a newborn can be daunting, particularly when you are coming to a completely unknown place. If you already know where you are going and have met some friendly faces, it is a pleasure to turn up and show off your new baby.
