Becoming a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter

Breastfeeding Peer Supporters are trained to provide breastfeeding support and information to parents in the community. They completed a breastfeeding training based on the La Leche League New Zealand Peer Counsellor Programme and are police vetted.

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