About this event

Come along with your baby, toddler or preschool child. Lots of toys to keep children happy & a range of refreshments.

Our breastfeeding support is provided by accredited peer supporters and breastfeeding counsellors. However, we support all parents with all feeding queries without judgement or expectation. You don't need to have a problem either, just come for a cuppa & chill.

Our venue is in Barnstaple town centre and ground floor. Head up Butchers Row past Cafe Nero, turn right into the churchyard past East & West Bakery and you will see our sign. Go through the brown door & we are the right hand door.
