Hi I’m esme, Mama to my first baby Raphael. 🙌 I have always loved breastfeeding but have had rocky times facing a tongue tie which was resolved at 8 weeks was a major hurdle for me and one I couldn’t have got over without the help of the BOOBS Bury team.

Peer support volunteer

Hi, I’m Taymara, mom of 2, and I’ve been a volunteer with this B.O.O.B.S since December 2023. My breastfeeding journey began with my first child, whom I breastfed for two years. Being a part of the B.O.O.B.S team allows me to give back and support others in achieving their breastfeeding goals.

Betty-Ann

Peer support volunteer

Hi, I'm Betty-Ann. I'm a volunteer breastfeeding peer supporter and volunteer walk leader. I breastfed my two boys; my eldest until 19 months and youngest until 23 months.

Our BOOBS peer support volunteers are the glue that holds our project together – we simply couldn’t support mums without them! Our volunteers are mums from both Salford and Bury who have all completed training through the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers or Breastfeeding Together – and crucially have all successfully breastfed their children, from between 4 months and nearly 3 years! This means they have a variety of experiences to be able to effectively give breastfeeding support. Our peer supporters can meet women 1:1 at our BOOBS venues, chat to them online or on the telephone, or provide a home visit (depending on the age of the baby.) They also support us through our monthly cafe events and stalls within the community.

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers – if you’re a breastfeeding mum in Salford or Bury borough, or have previously breastfed your children and have some time to spare, please use the form at the bottom of this page and we will be in touch.
