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
