Jennifer Mataitis - Breastfeeding Peer Supporter

About Jennifer

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. 

Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support through common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
