Charnae Perkins - Breastfeeding Peer Supporter


About Charnae

I am passionate about breastfeeding as it is a natural thing we women were born to do with our breasts for our children. I breastfed my son for 14 and a half months and I breastfed my daughter until she was almost 21 months of age. While breastfeeding I overcame battles of cracked nipples, blocked ducts, mastitis, nipple thrush as well as my daughter was in a hip brace from 5-8 months of age, so am more than happy to help you through those battles as well!  I would love to share my knowledge and provide advice to other mothers to help create an enjoyable breastfeeding journey for mother and baby. 

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