Hi! I have recently completed the peer support training programme that was run in Balclutha. I am a 25 year old mother of one very active 13 month old son, currently still on maternity leave so we are making the most of this special time together spending our days getting out and about and discovering our own backyard. I am excited to be able to support parents to reach their own breastfeeding goals. I did not think I would be so passionate about breastfeeding but my own breastfeeding journey has shown me just how wonderful of an experience it is for mother and baby. Even though it is a wonderful experience I know how hard it can be to get going, and to continue, and I am looking forward to supporting you through the good and the bad. Please call/text/email if you would like to meet up or chat about anything. Amazing what a cup of tea and a chat can solve sometimes!
Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support through common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
