Online support groups

Virtual breastfeeding support groups

Although we now have in-person support groups running again, we are continuing to run Zoom groups for those who would prefer to chat online.

We currently have two online groups via Zoom where you can chat to Peer Supporters and other local breastfeeding families. Numbers in each group are limited so booking is required. All groups are free of charge but if you wish to make a donation, here is the link to our PayPal.

Here is all the information and how to book:

  • Mondays: 10:30 – 11:30am (Peer Supporter led group) – 1st, 15th and 22nd November
    Email treasurechestyork@gmail.com to book by 8pm the night before
  • Thursdays: 11 – 12noon (IBCLC led group)
    Email carolinef.bolton@gmail.com to book

To book, just send a quick email and we will send you the Zoom link plus any other information you need to know about the group.

Facebook

Our Facebook group – ‘Treasure Chest & Beyond‘ – is a place where families can chat about their experiences of breastfeeding, share ideas, connect to other families in the area and find out more about what’s happening with Treasure Chest.

Members are all breastfeeding families (past or present), supporting partners and parents to be, in or connected to the York area.

The group is administered by trained Treasure Chest Peer Supporters (TCPS) and breastfeeding counsellors (BFC) and you’ll usually find one of us online to answer any queries you have.

What families have to say about our online support groups

Would highly recommend the zoom meetings. Had so much on my mind with sleep, breastfeeding an older baby and it was so lovely to speak to other people who understand and to speak with Caroline too. I’ve come away feeling refreshed and ready to keep working at it. Thank you so much for putting these sessions on!

I will be eternally grateful to Treasure Chest & Beyond (York) for this group, the lovely supportive peer supporters, the drop in sessions and the lovely supportive community that we have here, this is a safe place where someone is even likely to offer help and advice at 3am in your hour of desperate need, when kind words are what you need the most!
I am so grateful for this amazing resource I am sure I would never have succeeded in feeding my babies for this long without your support so, THANK YOU!

It was friendly, informative, reassuring, helpful and a nice place to meet other mums and share experiences and listen to advice. It’s really helped and has been really enjoyable
