Breastfeeding Companions - Peer Support Program

Breastfeeding

Sign up for this free support program to talk with a mother who has breastfed her own children. Experienced mothers have volunteered to help you over the phone as often as you need within the first 3 months. Contact us anytime before or after baby is born.

Here's what some mothers have said about the program:

“Encouraged me to keep trying and always complimented me. She told me I was doing a great job. This kept me motivated.”

“Just having someone to talk to made it a bit easier.”

“She [Breastfeeding Companion] was very reassuring and gave me confidence.”

How do I get more information?

Register online or by phone.

What if English isnít my first language?

We have volunteers who speak a number of languages and we will try to match you with a mom who speaks the same language as you.

Interested in volunteering?

We're looking for mothers who have had a positive breastfeeding experience for at least six months and who value the importance of breastfeeding. You must be able to attend a one-day training session (lunch is provided) and be willing to provide telephone support to mothers living in Peel. To learn more visit our volunteer site.
