Peer supporters are parents, who have undertaken specialist volunteer training, to provide you with an understanding ear, practical support and information relating to breastfeeding.
If you would like to chat to a peer supporter about breastfeeding, you can contact us in a few different ways -
This volunteer team of local mothers will also link in with existing activities provided by local health practitioners and we have been working hard to set up collaborative working links with other peer support groups in North Wales. The team feel very strongly that the role of a peer supporter is complementary, not supplementary, to local health professionals and the peer supporters will point parents in the right direction for more specialised help where needed. In many cases, your midwife or health visitor would be your first point of contact for the breastfeeding advice you need.
ATTENTION KNITTERS! Could you knit us a knocker? Our peer supporters need knitted boobs to help demonstrate latching and positioning techniques - they are also a great ice breaker and a calling card! If you or your knitting group would like to get involved then please get in touch!
