Waitaha Baby Feeding Service

The Community Based Lactation Consultation Service provides specialist support to mothers with complex breastfeeding issues via community-based clinics, home visits, individual appointments, virtual consults and telephone follow up as appropriate.

Mother-4-Mother Peer Support Programme

Sometimes the best advice for breastfeeding mothers comes from other mothers with breastfeeding experience. Through our Canterbury-wide service, trained peer supporters attend breastfeeding support groups and provide one-to-one help when needed.
