NCT Glasgow Breastfeeding Buddies provide free, friendly, parent to parent breastfeeding support throughout Glasgow. Our volunteer Breastfeeding Peer Supporters facilitate groups in the Gorbals, Kirkintilloch and Barrhead.
We are looking for local parents with breastfeeding experience to train as Breastfeeding Peer Supporters and help to facilitate our community group in the Gorbals. Breastfeeding Peer Supporters offer parent to parent support to breastfeeding mums/parents within the community. They provide support, information and a listening ear.
As a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter, you will:
Help to set up the room,
Provide a warm welcome (and a warm drink!) to parents attending our group,
Provide support and information on breastfeeding, a listening ear, and signposting where necessary,
Complete group related admin tasks,
Help to tidy up after the group is finished,
Please note that you will be required to complete 21 hours of online training (3 hours x 7 weeks) and fill in an online workbook. All Breastfeeding Peer Supporters must have a minimum of 3 months of breastfeeding experience (can include expressing).
