Infant Feeding Support

Currently we are not running drop in sessions as before. We are committed to providing all our families help and support. At present we have a targeted service those in need of infant feeding support. Please email huh-tr.homertoninfantfeeding@nhs.net and include the following details:

•    your name, telephone number and if possible Baby’s NHS number (which can be found on the front of your red book)
•    the date of your baby’s birth
•    postcode

Someone will be checking the inbox daily, Monday- Friday, and we will aim to get back to everyone within 48hours, with the exception of weekends. Where appropriate you will be invited along to one of our pre-booked sessions for face to face support, or support can also be provided virtually.
If you are very worried about your baby’s feeding and can’t wait for a response, are very distressed, or don’t have internet access/email, you can call us instead:

•    Monday – Friday 8am – 3pm call the community midwifery office on 0208 510 5761
•    Saturday and Sunday 8am – 12pm as above, 0208 510 5761
•    Outside of these hours until 6pm every day, or if you cannot reach the community midwifery team, call the maternity helpline on 0208 510 5955
•    Our postnatal ward team are available overnight for very urgent queries on 0208 510 7561
•    If you have been discharged to our Health Visiting Team please call 02076384219

We are requesting that you email if possible. However, we are here if you need us on the telephone. We are committed to supporting you to feed your baby in the way that suits you and supporting your transition to parenthood.
