Peer supporter programme

Each Oldham district has a peer support network. This is made up of local mums who have personal and practical experience and knowledge in breastfeeding. They volunteer their time to offer their support to other local mums. Peer supporters have breastfed their babies successfully and may have undergone problems but they have worked through and overcame them, and want to pass on their advice and support to you.  All volunteers are thoroughly trained by our experts in breastfeeding before supporting women and they are closely supported and monitored in case they need any help or information.

Breastfeeding Welcome
