Thinking of joining the team? There are lots of ways you can help out. Offering to support mums at our groups is just one way in which you can get involved.
Training involves building a portfolio of knowledge, information and resources to use when volunteering at the groups. We guide you through the different topics such as skin-to-skin contact, anatomy and physiology, positioning and attachment, scenarios, videos, and interactive power points by starting you off with a training pack and folder of assessment tools.
The portfolio can be built at your own pace and in your own time. If you have a friend why not work together?
When you are finished we ask you to demonstrate your new knowledge in a skills review, demonstrating hand expression (with a knitted breast), positioning and attachment, just as you have learnt and done as a breastfeeding mother yourself. This is completed with one of our lactation consultants.
Couldn't be simpler. Then you become one of the team. You will certainly discover new and exciting information that you will hopefully share for years to come.
Interested? then why not email the team and get started.
