A Mum2Mum breastfeeding peer support programme operates in New Addington and Waddon. Peer supporters are local mothers who have breastfed their own children, and have undertaken a 20 hour training course to provide help and support to new mums.

The peer supporters run weekly drop-ins alongside the baby clinics in New Addington/ Fieldway and Waddon areas. These drop-ins are run by the supporters themselves. We have hot and cold refreshments for anyone who drops in as well as providing a listening ear and practical support and encouragement.

Wednesday 13.30-14.30 – at Aerodrome Children’s Centre (Waddon)
Thursday 09.30-11.30 – at Castle Hill Children’s Centre (New Addington/Fieldway)

Volunteer Peer Supporters

Volunteer peer supporters are mothers who have breastfed their infants for more than four weeks and have an interest in breastfeeding. These mothers are able to offer informal befriending and support to mothers who are interested in giving breastfeeding a try, within a friendly and relaxed environment.

If you would like to find out more about the role of the volunteer peer supporter within the Mum2Mum programme or Baby Cafe then please contact the Peer Support Programme on 020 8714 2985 who will be happy to provide information about the training and to advise you when and where the next training will be held.
