Hiya! I'm Emma, I am passionate about breastfeeding and really love supporting women to reach their breastfeeding goals, overcome challenges and share in the the joys of motherhood! I have three daughters ages 4 ,6 and 13 and each child brought different experiences in breastfeeding. Knowing personally, what a difference the right support and informed choice can make, I decided I'd like to be a part of that. During my nursing journeys, I have personal experience with breastfeeding through a pregnancy, dry nursing, tandem feeding (which has been a challenge and delight!), raynards, over supply, different positions, tongue tie, mastitis/blocked ducts, feeding into toddler and beyond, post natal depression/anxiety, weaning, mixed feeding, pumping/expressing among other things. I've been volunteering regularly at The Breast Room for over 2 years now, after I finished my initial training (I love taking up opportunities for professional development too!), and have just moved into a management role which is amazing, so I can add working and breastfeeding to the list too lol. You are welcome to contact me via my cell phone, texting is fine, or email. You can also find me at The Breast Room on Wednesday mornings. If you'd like to chat about anything, or need some support or information, sing out 😊
Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support through common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
