A team of mums who took part in training so that they could help other mothers who are breastfeeding their babies have just graduated.

The 17 mums are now qualified as Breastfeeding Peer Supporters and their role is vital to help new mothers get breastfeeding off to a good start and continue to breastfeed for as long as they want to.

The mums have undergone the training at Balby’s Children’s Centre with RDaSH staff working hand in hand with colleagues from Doncaster Council.
