Our peer supporters are all mums who have breastfed their child for at least six months and have undergone training to enable them to support other mums who wish to breastfeed. They have all had 20 hours of training which covers areas such as counselling and listening skills, how breastfeeding works and how to tackle breastfeeding problems.
Our peer supporters are all volunteers and you can find them at one of our our drop-in groups, on the hospital ward as part of their hospital visits, and at our antenatal workshops. Most women who have problems breastfeeding find their problems are resolved after meeting with our peer supporters, however, should you wish to see a breastfeeding counsellor this can be arranged.
