One Bristol Mum reader shares her personal experiences of Babes@Zion:

“Babes@Zion is a lovely group, and I think quite unusual as they welcome toddlers and older children as well as babies. There is a play area at Zion for them, and a nice outdoor space. I went there to meet people because I moved to the area just before having second my baby, but there is a mixture of people who go, some for advise and others to socialise.

There is a very friendly, knowledgable breastfeeding councillor there every week, and two or three peer supporters. There is a lot of support there for breastfeeding older babies and toddlers, and baby led weaning. Zion is worth a visit itself (they have also have activities for pre-school children on Tuesday and Thursday mornings).”
