Have you considered becoming a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter?
A Peer Supporter is a mum who has breastfed and /or provided breastmilk for her child, who has undertaken a Peer Supporters training course. Whether you had difficulties, or it was all plain sailing, your experiences will be valuable in supporting others. No previous knowledge is necessary before training, we just ask that you have the experience of having breastfed your own baby.
About the training course:
The free 9 week North Somerset Public Health Breastfeeding Peer Support Course is delivered locally by our Public Health Peer Supporter trainers. Babies are welcome to join you at the training sessions.
Courses are held in North Somerset Children’s Centre Venues
