This training is most suitable for mothers wanting an introduction to breastfeeding with a view to becoming a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter.

About this event

This training is designed for mothers/parents who have breastfed (chestfed, nursed or given human milk) for a minimum of 4 weeks and who have an interest in breastfeeding.

Opportunities and requirements for volunteering or paid work are variable dependant on area and organisation.

The training course covers the following:

  • The role of a breastfeeding peer supporter.
  • How to communicate as a breastfeeding peer supporter.
  • Health benefits of breastfeeding.
  • Positioning and attachment.
