Hi, I am Nicola, a stay at home mum to our wee girl. I really wanted to breastfeed but found it to be a lot harder at the beginning than it looked. With a lot of support from our midwife, a lactation consultant and a peer supporter friend we persevered and after a number of weeks we had it sussed! Through our journey, I have met a lot of mums who have also struggled with breastfeeding and all the comes with being a new mum and hope to be able to support them through the difficult times so they can enjoy the experience like we are now.
Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support through common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
