what is peer support
What is Peer Support?

It is not a new concept!

The goal of peer support is to encourage and support pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding.

The peer supporter is a true peer of the breastfeeding mother and not a healthcare professional.

how do peer supporters help
How do Peer Supporters Help?
  • Improve local breastfeeding rates
  • Raises the awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding in the local community
  • Aims to improve the social acceptability of breastfeeding within the local community
  • Provides an informal network of support for local mothers both before and after the baby is born
  • Improves access to easy to understand and evidence based breastfeeding information
  • Embraces a partnership approach between the lay breastfeeding supporters, local primary healthcare professionals, and other local organisations that promote breastfeeding.

BFN Breastfeeding Helper Training
  • 15 week course ran by BFN facilitator (plus monthly supervision sessions for 6 months).
  • Course content typically includes; principles of breastfeeding and ways of supporting mothers, debriefing on personal experiences, self awareness, listening skills, role boundaries and responsibilities, record keeping, child protection issues, confidentiality, working safely in others’ homes and support mechanisms.
  • Within all the programmes there is a general recognition that peer supporters are there to listen to women, to validate their experiences, to facilitate and empower.
  • Supporters tend to experience personal growth and a feeling of empowerment as a result of the training programme.
