Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
This is a weekly clinic offering individual consultations with practitioners who specialise in breastfeeding. To book an appointment, please call the duty HV number 0300 123 3444. If your baby is under 2 weeks old, you do not need an appointment; please attend between 9-11.30am to see the specialist midwife.
Mothers are also encouraged to access the Medway Breastfeeding Network which can offer drop-in groups and one-to-one sessions for breastfeeding support. Please use:
