I live between Clyde and Alexandra with my two children. I loved my breastfeeding experience once I jumped the hurdle of latching pain, and a baby with silent reflux. I hope women will feel empowered by the information and the support they can receive from the network of peer support mums so they can make the best choices for them and their baby and have a positive breastfeeding journey.

Vanessa lives in Alexandra with her three children, she has had a wonderful experience breastfeeding her 3 children but found a lot of friends and others were not so lucky and didn't receive the support they needed which led to heartbreak for some. Vanessa believes that women should be empowered to make their own choices with information and support, and to feel confident in the decisions they make - whatever those choices may be. She is passionate about being involved in the community and hopes to help woman on their journey to a positive breastfeeding experience.

Hi there, I'm Belinda, a mum and step mum to two girls. My husband and I decided to move our family up from Dunedin to Wanaka last year to take advantage of this beautiful part of the country. I decided to become a breastfeeding peer supporter as I am passionate about working alongside families to enhance their parenting experience.

Hi, my name is Genevieve. I am mum to one and step-mum to two others. I am currently breastfeeding and while it has been an enjoyable journey, to begin with I found it hard and confusing. My son had a tongue-tie and I am now trying to learn more about this. I am looking forward to meeting and helping others through their own journey.

I was born and spent my childhood in South Africa, lived in Australia for 16 years and now living in New Zealand. I am a mum of two children who were both born in Sydney, Australia. My breastfeeding journeys' for both my children were very different experiences and interesting challenges. My background is Social Work and have spent most of my professional life working within the youth work sector. I am currently a "stay at home mum" whilst my partner works "fly in fly out" based back in Australia. This has allowed me to enjoy spending as much time with my children and also take on volunteer roles such as Breastfeeding Peer Support. I look forward to getting to know you!

Hi, I am 6 months into my journey of motherhood...WOW! There is so much to learn and what an amazing body us females have...magical! I have a wee buba girl called Ahri and we are based in Wanaka :). I have become so interested (OK obsessed) with boobies and babies and just how amazing our bodies are! To me breastfeeding is so important in so many ways. I could talk about it forever, but I won't bore you ;). I come from the UK so I know how isolating those first few months can be with no family around as support. So, I guess my main drive is to be that friend who can be called upon at any time, any day for chats, tea, advice and of course I have a great pair of listening ears :). I have a passion for helping others and empowering woman to be confident in themselves and the choices they make :) Have a beautiful day, I look forward to meeting you :)

Hi there, My name is Jennifer and I live in Chatto Creek, just outside Alexandra, with my partner and young daughter. Originally from Canada, I moved to New Zealand almost 4 years ago now. I have had a wonderful experience breastfeeding my daughter so far but I know not everyone has had a positive breastfeeding experience. I want to support other mothers in my local community on their journey, and work towards normalising breastfeeding. I believe that women should be empowered to make their own choices in regards to their parenting and should have as much support as possible. I am currently a stay-at-home-mum, I was a teacher before (9 years teaching) and am passionate about being involved in the community and developing a culture of positive open discussion around breastfeeding and parenting choices. I am happy to come visit you or meet up for a coffee or a walk. Whatever suits you. Feel free to call or text.
