Peer Support Meet Ups

It takes a village to raise a child … but what about you?

Founded by local parent and ABM trained Breastfeeding Mother Peer Supporter Emily Harper, It Takes A Village’s pilot project launched in Crystal Palace Park in May 2021. A wellbeing meet up group for breastfeeding mums and their babies, it is free to attend thanks to seed funding from Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich MIND.

Join our village, and come feel supported with other local mums. Practice building your post lockdown, outdoor breast/chest feeding confidence, and explore a calm, mindful relationship with your baby, and more importantly, yourself. Connect, share, learn, vent, laugh and sleep (ok, we can’t promise you that last one, sorry!)

Our Spring and Summer sessions are a BYO picnic rug meet up in the park, located in the fenced enclosure next to the Brown & Green Life cafe and children’s playground. This Autumn, we are taking meets indoors to St Hugh’s Community Centre, less than 10 minutes walk from the park. Sessions are on every Tuesday, and run for approximately an hour from 10.15am.

Numbers are limited so book your free spot via Happity today. We can’t wait to meet you!
