Trained breastfeeding counsellors run our ABM Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 330 5453 (9.30am -10.30pm). Our volunteers are happy to talk to parents, friends, families – anyone who has a question or concern about breastfeeding. We’re also partners on the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212 (9.30am – 9.30pm). Both helplines are open every day of the year.
All our members share an interest in breastfeeding. You don’t have to be a mother or have breastfed to become an ABM member. We’ll send you a welcome pack with a full set of our ABM breastfeeding leaflets and a copy of our latest ABM magazine bursting with articles and information. We publish this three times a year.
Each ABM breastfeeding counsellor is trained to a high standard and can provide up to date, accurate, evidence-based information. She will use empathy and understanding to support parents to reach their own breastfeeding decisions.

Our annual summer conference is great place to meet other breastfeeding enthusiasts. We host knowledgeable speakers and practical workshops. It’s a friendly networking opportunity for our own volunteers and for anyone who’d like to learn more about breastfeeding.
