Breastfeeding support

We’re lucky to have various options for you to find support within our community both online and in person. Mother to mother support and HBC Lactation Consultants are available by self or medical professional referral. You can request to join our private and supportive Facebook group: Helensville Breastfeeding Support here.

Parent Aid

Parent Aid North West is a free at-home service for parents. They give parents a hand when they have their hands full. They work with first-time mums while they establish breastfeeding, look after their newborn and recover from childbirth. Parent Aid can also provide help for parents who have a young, growing family of little ones where life can get extremely busy.
