Our BOOBS Mother Supporters have all had ABM (Association of Breastfeeding Mothers) Training and are local mums with a huge range of breastfeeding experience. They can help you with any issues you may be having, and are always happy to talk. Our BOOBS Mother Supporters will refer you on to a local breastfeeding counsellor or IBCLC if they feel they cannot help.
Doing Peer Support differently.
We know you don’t necessarily want to have to go to a children’s centre to have an appointment. So we’ll be popping up around Salford every week at our partner classes – The Salford Sling Libraries and Dance Like a Mother classes – as well as being able to book 1-1 appointments in a BOOBS Approved venue or venue of your choice, with the volunteer closest to your home.
Our Mother Supporter service launched on 30th April 2019 and will be slowly expanding over the coming months. You can book an appointment at one of our pop up classes using the calendar below, or email us firstname.lastname@example.org any time to request a match with your nearest volunteer for a more private appointment. For urgent requests the central phone number for Peer Support Lead and Managing Director Kimberly is 07402630671.
The BOOBS Mother Supporter Service is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. Please note we are not insured to do home visits so can only meet mums in a public, mutually convenient venue, or during/before/after one of our partner classes.
