About Our Team

Lowestoft and Waveney Breastfeeding Support is run by people with lived experience of breastfeeding, each of whom have all completed varying levels of training to allow them to offer support to families accessing the service. 
Our Peer Supporters, have completed a 12 week course to enable them to support families with common concerns around normal breastfeeding behaviour and problems.

Our Breastfeeding Counsellors have completed the Peer Supporter training plus an 8 module course, which takes approximately 2 years. This enables them to support families with more complex breastfeeding concerns.

Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) have completed either a recognised Health Care Professional degree or 14 Health Science courses, plus 90 hours of lactation specific education, 1000+ clinical hours and passed a 4 hour exam. This is the highest qualification within breastfeeding, allowing them to deal with complex breastfeeding concerns and problems.
