A hub in the heart of Crystal Palace

Breast & chest feeding peer support

Build confidence out & about

Make connections with local mums

Restore you

Our pilot breast/chest feeding peer support group launched in Crystal Palace Park SE19 in May 2021. These community hang outs are free for local mums and their babies thanks to seed funding from Mind Charity. Our meets focus on connection, wellbeing, and self expression. Book your spot here.

Connect

Friendly, informal weekly hang outs with local mums and their babies in Crystal Palace Park during the Spring and Summer months. Bring a picnic rug, relax, re-group and breathe. During Autumn and Winter, our meets move into a cosier setting indoors. Attendees can also opt to join our ITAV community on WhatsApp, keeping in touch with new found play-date buddies or accessing a nurturing network of support.

Support

Our sessions are led by local mum, Founder and Breastfeeding Mother Peer Supporter Emily Harper, and supported by qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor, Eleanor Campbell, both of whom trained at the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers. Come share your feeding highs and lows, build confidence breast/chest feeding whilst out and about, and get signposted to further help or evidence based information.

Restore

Parenting got you down? Feeling anxious, overwhelmed, isolated or downright knackered? ITAV brings simple wellbeing and mindfulness techniques and the sharing of resources, to inspire, engage and restore you back to you.

It Takes A Village To Raise a Child.

AFRICAN PROVERB

… And it also takes a village to support a mum. You are not alone.
