We asked families in Somerset to tell us what support and advice would be useful before and during pregnancy and throughout breastfeeding.

We really value your thoughts and feedback on this site and all maternity services in Somerset. If you would like to share an experience or have a query please feel free to get in contact.

*This email is not a support services and is not monitored 24 hours. If your query relates to the health and wellbeing of yourself or your baby please contact your GP, midwife or health visitor as suitable.

For answers to common questions and concerns you can download and interact with Start 4 Lifes interactive Breastfeeding Friend (BFF) ChatBot

The BFF is accessed through Facebook messenger and provides personal support for mothers and families at any time of the day or night to help make breastfeeding a better experience.
