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