Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM)

ABM are a group of trained volunteers dedicated to supporting breastfeeding mums and their families. We’ve been supporting mums and nurturing families for almost 40 years. We’d love you to join us. Become a member of the ABM and help us continue our work.

As well as supporting breastfeeding mums, we offer training for mothers, families and healthcare professionals who want to further their knowledge. Many of our breastfeeding counsellors are mums who’ve benefited from ABM support and now want to share their knowledge and experience.

Restrictions to access
We operate a voluntary telephone helpline for any mother who needs to speak to a trained breastfeeding counsellor. You will be connected to your nearest available counsellor. We also offer counselling by letter and email, although urgent counselling is best done by telephone. If necessary and practical, a mother may receive a home visit from, or may herself visit, a trained counsellor. However, home visits are entirely at the discretion of any counsellor involved and cannot be guaranteed.

The ABM's breastfeeding helpline is open every day from 9.30am to 10.30pm. Email Counselling - counselling@abm.me.uk We can answer your breastfeeding questions via email - non urgent queries only please. Some situations are easier to discuss on the phone as then we can ask about all the relevant details. If you prefer to email us please include as much information as possible in your initial email so we can more accurately reply to your questions or concerns.
