A CAF: designed for breastfeeding mums to get help, advice and make new friends has been launched.

The Sidcup Baby Café will open weekly at the New Community Church in Station Road on Tuesdays from 1 to 3pm.

The café is to help new mums who feel isolated and those who are experiencing problems and health experts will be on hand for support.

Sonya Cox, Bexley Care Trust, lead facilitator for the Sidcup Baby Café, said: "As a health visitor working in Sidcup I became frustrated at the lack of support available. Fortunately a new children's centre opened and the manager, Claire Jenkins, was also interested in improving breastfeeding rates in the area.

"Together we have set up the café. It is the first Baby Cafe in Bexley and we hope the start of many more."

The group is supported by a Nursery Nurse from Bexley Care Trust and two breastfeeding consultants will work alternate weeks.
