Course information:
Haringey Peer Support Service is running a free, 12 week, OCN accredited course for local mothers to train as breastfeeding peer supporters.  

We want volunteers to reflect the diversity of our borough.  Get in touch to make a difference.

Places will be allocated to train mothers and breastfeeding parents that represent different communities in Haringey.

Breastfeeding Peer Supporters are people that have breastfed a child and completed the OCN accredited course.  They volunteer their time at drop in groups throughout Haringey and North Middlesex and Whittington hospitals.  They provide non judgemental support and information to families so they can reach their infant feeding goals.
