We 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.
