Breastfeeding Support Otago & Southland

On this page

    Breastfeeding Support Otago & Southland helps link women with a breastfeeding peer supporter in their area. Breastfeeding peer supporters are volunteers trained to provide breastfeeding support and basic breastfeeding information to mothers in the community.

    Peer supporters have graduated from a programme based on the La Leche League New Zealand Peer Counsellor Programme and completed the breastfeeding training provided by a Peer Counsellor Administrator. They have all been police vetted.
