Local Breastfeeding Peer Support Groups


 
Information about the Breastfeeding Peer Support programme
 
 
Breastfeeding Peer Supporters are women from the local community who have breastfed their own babies and have completed a recognised training programme.
They work as volunteers providing information, support and encouragement regarding breastfeeding to pregnant women and new mothers in a variety of settings. They are not intended to replace health and children centre professionals but to compliment them in their role of promoting and supporting breastfeeding.
