Kia Ora, I'm Chevelle, wife of Joe and mum of two kids, Delilah born in October 2016 and Abel born in January 2019. Both born at home and breastfed. Delilah's journey had a very rough beginning with mastitis and thrush but thanks to an amazing midwife, family and breastfeeding peers we made it to 20 months and ten weeks pregnant with Abel. Abels breastfeeding journey has been very different. I am also a Registered Nurse in aged care but depsite this i'm so passionate about babies and breastfeeding. I hope through support, encouragement and education I can help a fellow mum or whanau in their feeding journey.
Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support through common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
