BMM Meeting Not meeting at present
Diss ECFS (formerly Diss Children's Centre)
First Friday of the month
Next meeting: Friday, 5 February 2021 at 10:00
About the meeting
Join us for a relaxed and friendly session with breastfeeding peer support and a chance to meet other mums and have a chat. Breastfeeding should never be lonely. There will also be free soft drinks and cake!
You’re welcome to come along at any time during the session – it’s really informal. Older siblings are also welcome and there will be a selection of toys for different ages.
Meetings will be on the first Friday of each month from 10-11.30 – hope to see you there!
About your host
I’m Lucy, I’ll be wearing my BMM grey hoodie. I’m Mummy to 2 little girls who are 4 and 2. I’m currently training to be a breastfeeding peer supporter so can offer peer support and information and help refer you to any more support you may need.
If you are worried about coming along, I’m very happy to meet anyone on their own before the meet starts, just send me a message.
How to find us
The Children’s Centre is next to Diss Infant’s School. Follow signs to the Children’s Centre from the gate and a member of staff will show you to the room.
There’s no parking on site for visitors but you can park on either Fitzwalter Road or Fieldhouse Gardens – there are entrances on both roads.
There is a shelter for buggies by the door as they are restricted on space to keep them inside.

Name and Role – Lucy, host
Location – South Norfolk
Length of time breastfeeding – About 28 months in total – I stopped just after 14 months for both girls.
Favourite thing about breastfeeding – the cuddles that came with it
Bio – I’m Lucy Harper, I have two lively girls, Rachel who’s 4 and Lauren is 21 months and I’m a stay at home mum. I grew up in Norfolk and moved to Diss 5 years ago, after a few years working (and finding my husband!) in London. We love getting out in the countryside with the girls and I’m so lucky to have family nearby to help out.
I fed both girls for around 14 months and on the whole loved it, but we definitely had our struggles, particularly in the early days with Rachel. We had amazing support along the way from midwives, friends and family, a breastfeeding support ‘cafe’ in Diss and a local mums Facebook group (I didn’t find out about BMM until too late!), and it made all the difference.
As the girls are getting a bit older, I have a little more time and would love to try to make that difference to other mums. I’m really excited to be planning new regular meets in Diss in the new year!
