It is with much sadness, that we have taken the unavoidable decision to suspend the Cambridge Breastfeeding Alliance drop-in at Trumpington for the foreseeable future. We have also put our plans for opening a new drop-in at Ross St Community Centre on hold.
However, we are working to ensure that mothers, families and babies still get the breastfeeding support they need when they need it.
We have set up a closed women-only Facebook group, where you can ask for the support you might have asked for at a drop-in from one of our breastfeeding counsellors or IBCLCs. If you post in the group, we will aim to answer you as soon as we can.
You can join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/725008948037306/
Where we feel we can support you more effectively with online video support from one of the breastfeeding counsellors or IBCLCs, we will aim to arrange an online video call with you.
We are here for you.
Cambridge Breastfeeding Alliance Drop-in is on Mondays (except Bank Holidays) 12.30-2.30pm
at Trumpington Meadows Primary School, Kestrel Rise, Trumpington, Cambridge CB2 9AY.
You can park at Trumpington Park & Ride site, pay £1 for unlimited time, and walk down towards the John Lewis building. Turn left on the footpath along the side of the school, then left to the entrance doors at the front. Don’t be put off by building works! Do bring wheels or a sling to carry the baby from the car park to the school, it’s a couple of minutes’ walk, too far to carry a car seat comfortably. Partners or other family members welcome.

“Thank you so much for the time you spent with me that day telling me I was doing a good job with the breastfeeding (or attempts at it). I felt so low and frustrated by the whole thing it was a real boost to my confidence to hear that someone thought I was doing well.”
CBA is supported by many wonderful donors. Special thanks to.
