If you are having a baby, or your baby is already here, Helensville Breastfeeding Peer Supporters are here for you!
Breastfeeding Peer Supporters (also called Breastfeeding Peer Counsellors) are volunteers who provide non-judgmental information and support on the normal course of breastfeeding, overcoming common barriers and breastfeeding challenges. They are available for support via Facebook, text, phone, email, at HBC coffee mornings and sometimes home visits.
Breastfeeding is a learned art, and mothers are known to have better breastfeeding experiences when they are given informed support from friends
Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support with common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
