Mother-to-mother peer support

A woman who has successfully breastfed is a valuable asset to her community, and often highly motivated to help and support other mothers.

The Breastfeeding Peer Counsellor Programme is a La Leche League initiative that builds on this community capacity to provide cost-effective breastfeeding peer support.

The programme provides women from target populations with training and resources to offer skilled and knowledgeable help to other mothers (their peers).
