Breastfeeding Support

Cuidiú has many fully qualified, voluntary Breastfeeding Counsellors (BFCs) around the country who offer support, and information to mothers, face to face or over the phone.  

This is a free service.  We are all volunteers.  If we miss your call just call the next counsellor on the list.  We’ll be happy to talk to you.
