Looking for breastfeeding support or just want to chat to another mum about breastfeeding?
The Breastfeeding Network has trained peer support volunteers in your local area.
All our volunteers are mums who have breastfed their own children and then completed training so that they can support other families. Whatever your question or if you just want to chat to someone, please get in touch.
We offer a 1:1 peer support service where new and expectant mums are partnered up with one of our volunteer peer supporters to provide personalised, non-judgemental support at your fingertips before and after birth, to help get breastfeeding off to the best start in the early weeks and months. Peer Supporters can provide support via text, phone, video calls and home visits.
Support is also available in Gaelic.
Type of services available
