We are a voluntary group of local mothers who live in the Mid-Ulster area of Northern Ireland who are enthusiastic about breastfeeding.
We educate women antenatally about breastfeeding and then support breastfeeding mothers during their breastfeeding journey.
We have all registered as volunteers and completed an extensive breastfeeding course.
In partnership with Gold Community Partnership Surestart, we have successfully completed Stage 2 of the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative. This provides a framework for the implementation of best breastfeeding practices in hospitals and in the community.
Congratulations to our new Breastfeeding Peer Support Volunteers (pictured with Tina, Volunteer Coordinator), who have recently completed their Solihull Breastfeeding Peer Support training. #November2019
