Moms and Babies

Breastfeeding Peer Support

Along with Health for All, our Breastfeeding Peer Support provides advice and support from specialist, trained advisers to new mums. In addition, we train experienced mums as peer supporters, Bosom Buddies, who can provide guidance face-to-face, on the telephone, or through social media to new mums.
