"The Breastfeeding Buddy is a volunteer mum in your area who has some personal experience with breastfeeding and who wants to offer support to other breastfeeding mothers.  She has some breastfeeding information training but she is not a breastfeeding counsellor or lactation expert, and does not provide lactation advice, but she is able to recognise when breastfeeding is proceeding normally. She will provide you with literature and information on breastfeeding, and sources of help in your area should you need it."
