ABM Admin

I am a mother of two breastfed daughters. I worked for a local (to me) organisation as peer support coordinator and breastfeeding peer support volunteer trainer. I was fortunate enough to begin working alongside the ABM and have had the great pleasure of developing their online training format and have gone on to become a marker and admin.

Partner Module: A toolkit for supporting a mum to breastfeed

Welcome to the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers’ partner module.

It looks like someone in your life is soon to be a breastfeeding mum!

It’s an exciting time for them and also for you. It’s a time that might also feel a bit scary but if you are there to help them, you can make a big difference. We know that breastfeeding is more likely to happen and to happen successfully when a new mum is supported by people who understand how breastfeeding works, how newborns behave and where to get help.

We hope you enjoy the course!
