Best Start Infant Feeding Peer Supporters

Waltham Forest (Chingford, Leyton, Leytonstone & Walthamstow) 

Our Best Start service operates across all of the Children & Family Centres in Waltham Forest and in local communities. Over 5,000 babies are born in Waltham Forest each year and our Infant Feeding team is on hand to provide support to mothers however they decide to feed their baby.

The majority of mothers would like to include breastfeeding and we know that mother-to-mother support works well. Our support includes a dedicated infant feeding helpline, breastfeeding cafes and 1-to-1 support.

If you would like to join our team of infant feeding peer supporters to help us reach as many new parents as we can and have personal experience of breastfeeding please get in touch. Peer supporters receive 9 x 2hrs free training. We ask that you are available to provide support for at least 6 months.
