It was a life line since I just moved from Canada and all my family lived abroad.
Tamsyn and all the peer supporters were very friendly and made me feel very welcome.
First we meet in Avon way and later the group started to grow and we relocated in #Portishead Children Centre.
I learned more about the importance of breastfeeding and when the opportunity to help others came, I was more than happy to become a peer supporter.
The cafe runs every Tuesday from 10-12 where you can get one on one support. There is also a helpline you can call anytime and now we got a Facebook group where you can post your concerns anytime.
It doesnt matter where you come from, as long as you know that breastfeeding is the best start for your baby and you are happy to encourage others to do so, that is the important thing.
So if you are interested in becoming a peer supporter then please call us 07816 366370. or complete the form clicking here and someone will contact you to chat it through.
Alternatively you can send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us on Facebook
