Meet our Staple Hill Peer Supporters!
Hi my name is Jemma and I am a trained peer supporter and Association of Breastfeeding Mothers, Mother Supporter. I have two children both breastfed, one of which is still going strong!
I attended this group from day 5 with my first and it has been a lifeline ever since. A friendly space for breastfeeding support, but also a space to make friends with like-minded mums! There is always a warm welcome and a listening ear - it takes a village to raise every child, WELCOME!!
I'm Philippa and I'm a peer supporter. I visited a breastfeeding support group when my daughter was just a few weeks old and it was so valuable to our breastfeeding journey. I really wanted to help continue this important service. I also support breastfeeding families through the Drugs in Breastmilk service with The Breastfeeding Network.
Hi I'm Sam, I live in Downend, I've been a peer supporter through Barnados since December 2019. I wanted to become a peer supporter because I had a really difficult start to breastfeeding with my first child and I want to support other mums through those situations or just chat anything and everything breastfeeding, it's so fascinating! I have two children and work part time, plus also volunteer as a Girlguiding Ranger leader in Frampton Cotterell, I enjoy cooking and baking, partial to a gin, a rum or a lovely wine..... I also love watching movies and tv series, anything staring 'The Rock' goes to the top of my to watch list!
Hello, I'm Rachel and I love being a peer supporter!
I trained to be one after I realised how important the service is to new parents, after using the service myself when my son was small. It was an absolute 'life line' to us, and I know it has been many others too.
As well as providing and essential service, I love that the support groups are so friendly, and there is a real sense of community.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Staple Hill group.
I'm Charlotte. I trained as a Peer Supporter in 2019. I was inspired to complete training after attending a breastfeeding group and finding the help and support invaluable and I hope to help and support other parents in their breastfeeding journey. I look forward to welcoming you to the Staple Hill Breastfeeding Support group.
