Newborn feeding clinic

The Newborn feeding clinic is temporarily closed. In-line with government guidelines, we have looked to minimise non-essential face to face contact to protect you and our feeding clinic team. We will keep our website updated with further information when the position changes. We thank you for your support and wish you and your families well. Our clinics and X-ray are currently open for patients and operating within safe guidelines for patients and staff.


The AECC University College is a teaching clinic and we work together with Bournemouth University midwifery department to run a free breastfeeding support clinic on Thursday afternoons.

This clinic is aimed at those who are either breastfeeding exclusively or mixed feeding their babies up to 8 weeks of age by advising on positioning and comfort.

What happens on my visit

With your consent, a student midwife and chiropractic student will take a full history of your pregnancy, birth and any feeding concerns you may have. You will have the opportunity to breastfeed your baby to enable the student midwife to provide you with individual support. This may be followed by an examination of your baby by a chiropractic student, who will advise on your posture and positioning to assist with breast feeding. This consultation is overseen by experienced clinic tutors in both midwifery and chiropractic and can last for approximately one to two hours. The chiropractor and midwife, where appropriate, may offer you advice to help/assist your positioning and comfort.

As we are a teaching clinic, there may be two student midwives and a midwifery tutor in the room with you. There may also be a chiropractic student and a chiropractic tutor present at times. If at any time you feel uncomfortable about the number of people in the room with you, please mention this to us. We want to be as supportive and helpful to your needs as possible.

Book an appointment

We work closely with health visitors and midwifes, should you wish to advise your breast feeding mother about our clinic then please invite them to contact us direct to book an appointment via our chiropractic clinic.
