What is a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor (PC)?
A Breastfeeding Peer Counselor is a mother who has exclusively breastfed her child or children and has a passion in helping other mothers to reach their breastfeeding goal. Peer Counselors nurture and support mothers who want to breastfeeding and those with breastfeeding difficulties. They listen to the mother’s concerns and offer evidence based solutions. Counselors also refer mothers who need more help to the Lactation Consultant, and other health, nutrition and social programs.
