Breastfeeding Peer Supporters

Breastfeeding is a natural thing that most mothers can do but, that doesn’t mean it’s easy. That’s why in Newcastle we have a group of Breastfeeding Peer Supporters. They are breastfeeding mothers who have received additional training to provide support and to help you.
