Breastfeeding peer counselling programme
Breastfeeding peer counselling services educate and support mothers and their families with breastfeeding.
Services are mostly delivered one-on-one, in group sessions or via phone. They can also be delivered via another similar method as needed (such as via a social media discussion/chat).
Breastfeeding peer counselling programmes focus on:
- Addressing queries or concerns of mum
- Advice / best methods for breastfeeding
- Talanoa one-on-one or in groups
