Try the telephone lines:

NCT 0870 444 8708

ABM 020 7813 1481

BfN 0870 900 8787

LLL 020 7242 1278

You may not get to speak to someone actually in your area, and all the calls are answered by volunteers.

Hope you find what you need.

Speak to your HV or midwife as they should know about local contacts - mine did.

I personally found La Leche brill - did home visits etc to give me 'hands on' help.

If you contact the NCT enquiry line on 0870 444 8707 they will tell you the contact number for your local branch who will be able to let you know if there is a bfc in your area.

Whereabouts are you, there may be people on mumsnet who have information about your area.
