Who is a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor

  • A peer counselor is a mother just like you! She lives in your community and has breastfed her own baby.
  • She has been carefully selected and trained to give new mothers and expectant mothers information about feeding their babies. She is here to give you support to meet your own goals for feeding your baby.
  • As a new or expectant mother, you may have heard things about how to feed your baby. You may know breastfeeding is the best way to give your baby a healthy start and wonder how to fit into your life. Mothers everywhere have found that breastfeeding CAN work.

For more information call the Effingham County Health Department and ask for Emilee, the BF Peer Counselor or contact her on our Breastfeeding Facebook Page.
