What is The Baby Cafe?

Baby Cafe no longer runs at Purley Nursery. 


The information below is taken from the Baby Cafe website http://www.thebabycafe.org/ and we are affiliated with them to provide this service.


Extract from the Baby Cafe website

The Baby Café charity coordinates a network of breastfeeding drop-in centres and other services to support breastfeeding mothers across the UK and other parts of the world.



No appointment needed

All pregnant or breastfeeding mums are welcome to drop in at any time during opening hours. You can bring your partner too. Baby Café drop-in centres are generally open once a week and set out with coffee tables, comfy sofas and play areas for accompanying toddlers. Locations vary from church halls and community room to children's centres


Run by trained staff

Baby Café drop-ins are run by health professionals such as midwives, health visitors, or lactation consultants. Baby Café Local drop-ins may be run by healthcare practitioners (e.g. healthcare assistant, nursery nurse or maternity support worker) or breastfeeding counsellors from the voluntary breastfeeding organisations.



Help with every aspect of breastfeeding

Help is available on all aspects of breastfeeding and its impact on daily life – from starting to stopping and all the variations in between. In a relaxed, informal atmosphere you can:

  • Chat to other mums and build your confidence.
  • Get one-to-one help from specially trained staff
  • Look at books, leaflets and DVDs
  • And enjoy some tasty refreshments.

The Baby Café guarantee

Our name and trade mark is The Baby Café. All genuine Baby Café drop-in centres which are registered with us are listed on this website and will display their Licence Certificate during the Baby Café session. You can expect all these to be run to the same high standards.
