I’m Tania I have 2 girls Sophie (4)and Emily(2) I live in balclutha with my partner Kurt who’s a butcher at the freezing works. I breast fed both my girls for different lengths and felt it built a stronger bond between us. Plus the snuggles I loved. I’m currently studying to become a midwife at the moment while the girls are at kindy and I feel this course was a great addition to my future career. I’m a peer counsellor because I have a passion to help support other mums out there that are finding breast feeding to be difficult or that just want support in other areas to do with family or 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.
