Breastfeeding Peer Counselors

Breastfeeding peer counselors are moms who have breastfed and want to help other moms succeed in nursing their babies, too.

Breastfeeding peer counselors help new mothers who are beginning to breastfeed learn what to expect in the first days and weeks. They are available during and after business hours to answer any questions or concerns pregnant and breastfeeding moms might have.

Perry County Health Department offers breastfeeding classes that include.

  • Breast feeding Benefits
  • How to breastfeed successfully
