Our army of Breastfeeding Peer Supporters are all happy to help with any queries you have; Cracked nipples? Soreness? Latching problems? Something you’re not sure of, need reassurance? We are here to help and have first hand experience as we have all breastfed our babies!
We also have a very helpful Facebook page which is run by experienced Breastfeeding Peer Supporters. Find us in Exeter Breastfeeding Mums Facebook Page
We are peer supporters who are mums ourselves. We have all worked really hard to complete courses qualifying us to help you! We receive regular update training too!
Peer Support can often lead to us referring you to a professional, we are not medical experts, we just have a passion for helping you breastfeed your baby.
We are all happy to help and are normal mums who are passionate about helping you to breastfeed.

Breastfeeding Peer supporters are on hand to support you here in Crediton.
The OLD Landscore school is easy to find, just off the main road and 2 mins from the bus stop.
Rebecca, Vicky, Jo and co are here to make you a cuppa and settle you in. It’s a comfy space where older kids can roam about if you need to feed a new bub.
Time: – 9.30am – 4pm, Monday to Saturday
No need to book, just pop in for support and a cuppa. There are sofas to chill out on, we have a ground floor baby change area too.
We can also help with slings, nappies and general new baby support. There are breastfeeding cushions, books and breastpumps if you want to borrow one.
You can come and get a nappy hire kit, try on a sling or just chat about potty training.
Time: – 9.30am – 11am, Thursday
If you’re feeding a newborn but have a toddler too then this is the group for you! Bethany and the gang have a cozy corner away from the rest of the group where you can come for support and a natter. Bethany runs this group, ask for her if you can’t find her and you need help. It’s in the St Thomas Centre, off Church Road.
