Breastfeeding Peer Counselors

Peer counselors are moms who have breastfed and want to help other moms succeed in nursing their babies, too. They want to help provide moms-to-be and new moms with information and encouragement. They will answer your questions and share their own personal experiences. Peer counselors are here to encourage, educate, and connect with new moms, like you. Their main goal is to help you and your baby on this special journey.

​Peer Counselors provide:

  • Help with positioning and latching

  • Tips on how to breastfeed comfortably and discreetly, even in public

  • Ways you can stay close to your baby through breastfeeding after you return to work or school

  • Ideas for getting support from your family and friends

  • Ways to get a good start with breastfeeding

  • Tips for making plenty of breast milk for your baby

  • Information on your baby's sleeping and feeding patterns
