Our breastfeeding support service currently operate in three areas within the UK

  • Wakefield
  • Central Lancashire
  • PAN Dorset

Within these areas we have teams of peer supporters who provide breastfeeding support to local families throughout their breastfeeding journeys. This support can be tailored to the individual needs of each family and can start during pregnancy and continue as long as the family need us.

The Key Principles of FAB are;

  • To advance and promote the physical and physiological health of families
  • To promote the good health of children under the age of 5 and their families
  • To provide support, education and training to normalise breastfeeding
  • To support families by using evidence based research to provide training to promote healthy eating
