Best practice for breastfeeding peer support. A practical guide for those purchasing breastfeeding support

This guide is designed to give NHS managers involved in commissioning breastfeeding peer support services an insight into what a good quality, effective initiative should include. The guide aims to give an understanding of some of the pitfalls of running a programme and looks at peer recruitment, training, retention, supervision and funding. The guide appears to be the collective experience of people who have run breastfeeding peer support programmes. It does not appear to have engaged with service users and has not conducted new or independent research.
