Get help….

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.

Ok so it’s not like falling off a log….but if you get the right help it gets loads easier…!

Ok so it’s our cloth nappy and sling group but you don’t have to be using them to come. So if you are more ‘Pampers and Pushchair’ we still are going to welcome you with a hug and a cuppa- ESPECIALLY if you need support with breastfeeding. 

 

Thursday

Teign Valley Community Hall

St Thomas Tots

If you’re feeding a newborn but have a toddler too then this is the group for you! Helen 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.

The group finishes promptly at 3 as Gill has her school run to do.
