Louise Thompson - Breastfeeding Peer Supporter

About Louise

Hi, I live at Kaka Point and have two children: Bay born in 2011 and Esmé born in 2015. When I breastfed Bay as a first time mum it was a steep learning curve - a lot of things that I was concerned about were actually totally normal for a breastfed baby - the way they put on weight, sleep (or don't), feeding patterns, etc.

I decided to become a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter to help other mums, whatever their feeding choices are, to be confident, informed and supported whether that means breastfeeding for a few days or many years.  

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