What is the service?

Breastfeeding Peer Support for parents requiring practical, emotional and informational support for breastfeeding.

Support is available both one-to-one at your home or in a local community setting. There are also breastfeeding support groups held in local children’s centres.

What is the purpose of Breastfeeding Peer Support?

Breastfeeding Peer Supporters share breastfeeding recommendations that are based on evidence with the local community.

This is to help with any questions or difficulties, and to inform on the best ways for healthy breastfeeding.

How does it work?

Families are offered an enhanced service of one-to-one contact antenatally and postnatally via telephone support and home visits. 

Families do not necessarily need to be experiencing difficulties with infant feeding to be eligible for support and information. We encourage mums to attend to meet other mothers and avoid isolation.

What happens in the session?

Breastfeeding Peer Support offer a free non-judgmental service to help all mums on their breastfeeding journey, providing trained peer-to-peer support in person or on the phone.

The way Breastfeeding Peer Support supports mothers is by providing active listening and respecting a mother and supporting her choices.

This can include: 

  • Practical breastfeeding support.
  • Information about all aspects of infant feeding.
  • Peer-to-peer support.
  • Answering any questions or concerns about infant feeding.
