What is a breastfeeding support mother ?

A breastfeeding support mother is a mother who has breastfed at least one child and therefore has first-hand experience. She has also received additional basic training on breastfeeding as well as on Nourri-Source’s structure.  Her education continues regularly through monthly meetings in her community.  She accomplishes all of her work as a volunteer.

The breastfeeding support mothers are the foundation on which Nourri-Source rests.  Thanks to these amazing women’s commitment, breastfeeding is supported and encouraged in our communities.  These women hold the health and well-being of mothers and their babies close to their hearts and strongly believe that breastfeeding can help contribute positively.  Without their constant support, our organisation would not be what is has become today!
