The Breastfeeding Support Otago and Southland website was created by WellSouth Primary Heath Network.
Breastfeeding Support Otago and Southland (BFSOS) is a Peer Support programme. This programme aims to help those who are pregnant or intending to breastfeed and their whānau in our Southern communities. BFSOS provides access to free, friendly, and non-judgemental support to establish, maintain and continue breastfeeding and help with common feeding challenges. All Peer Supporters have completed accredited training and have been police vetted.
Choosing a Peer Supporter
Peer Supporters are based across the Southern region and have a range of experiences and backgrounds. To choose a peer supporter search by region or by the issue you need support with. Click on a Peer Supporters profile to find out more about them and their experience.
Peer Supporters are not medical professionals, but are volunteers trained to provide information and support through common challenges to the normal course of breastfeeding.
