Breastfeeding Peer Support

Organisation : NHS Lothian East Lothian Infant Feeding Team
Grant Amount : £ 5,000
Project Dates : June to December 2017

“Peer support” is an approach in which women with personal practical experience of breast feeding offer support to other mothers, usually within their own community. They can be mothers of any age who have breastfed their own baby/babies or are still breastfeeding and want to support other mothers to have a positive breastfeeding experience. This project will focus on the recruitment of Peer Supporters for the East and Midlothian Community.
