Breastfeeding Peer Counseling

Breastfeeding Peer Counselors are moms who have breastfed and want to help other moms succeed in nursing their babies, too!


Peer Counselors are here to encourage and to educate-but, more importantly, they are here to connect with new moms, like you, in a special way, for a very good help you and your baby.


Breastfeeding peer counselors teach a class to help you learn more about breastfeeding and are also available to provide new mothers with support and advice.


By having our peer counselors to talk or share with, new mothers become more confident and comfortable with learning to breastfeed.
