We are a commited group of mothers who are all qualified as Breastfeeding Peer Supporters. We volunteer our time to assist you with breastfeeding as we understand the importance of support and a friendly face during what can be a tricky time.
The group is aimed at breastfeeding mothers, and their partners, who are looking for guidance and support both in the early days, and throughout their breastfeeding journey. Please feel free to come when you are pregnant.
We offer help and reassurance and will signpost you to medical experts and advisors where necessary. Please come along for support and a friendly ear and to meet other mums who are at a similar stage to you.
We can accommodate toddlers and preschool children but we are not a playgroup, please feel free to come and we will aim to distract them with a box of toys whilst you get the breastfeeding support you need.
We have a private 1:1 feeding space available if you need it. We will be visited by Jemma our lovely Bra Lady and other local mums who provide breastfeeding clothing and the like, they will help with the financial running costs of the group.

Yes, that′s right. A playgroup for dads and toddlers!
‘We′re just groups of normal blokes, who also happen to be dads looking after their children during the week.
Some of us are homedads full time. Some have part time employment, and do the childcare on the other days. Some even work full time but with shift patterns that allow them to come to the playgroup with their kids. Room full of toys, games, crafts and play things for all pre school ages.’
Coffee, tea and biscuits on tap for dads. Juice and biscuits for the little ones or bring your own bottle! Great chance for dads and their little ones to get together and socialise.
Other venues used during school holidays. See website for more updates http://www.dadsandlittluns.co.uk/ (Top tip, Bring a packed lunch and stay and eat it after the session)

We aim to deliver a good mix of free play time, themed sessions (i.e. seasonal craft, cooking, and even science!), encouraging social skill development by sitting down to a snack and rounding the session off with a good old sing-song of all the traditional, favourite nursery rhymes and a few more modern adaptations!
The cost is £2.00 per family, which includes all craft materials, cooking ingredients, snack and of course, a cup of tea for Mum!
Time: 10-11 First Friday of the month.
This group is specifically for children with allergies. There will be no food or drink at this group.
It must be so scary to be mum to a child with severe allergies, at every group there are hidden dangers, oranges, cheese, nuts and milk to name but a few. Snack time can be messy, food on the floor and on hands and toys.
So if this is you and your child, here is a group where the worry has been taken away.
There are new toys and a very clean environment. There will be guest speakers from the Devon Allergy Clinic to answer any questions.
Please contact the group before heading out.
