Important: The ABM Peer Supporter course is for people who want to support other breastfeeding mothers and families voluntarily. It is not available for anyone who is a health professional in the field of infant feeding, or anyone who works in an infant-related job. This may also apply to people who work privately in postnatal support, baby massage, hypnobirthing and other jobs supporting new mothers. Please include this information in your answer to question 2.
Please note PS / BFC status is not valid outside of the UK. If a PS / BFC changes their residency to outside the UK or is temporarily out of the UK for longer than three months, then their status is no longer valid and is revoked. This applies to training status also.
As the Peer Supporter course is intended for peers, in certain circumstances we will consider people who haven't had breast-chestfeeding experience to take the Foundation course at Peer Supporter rates. These exceptions may include Trans and Non-Binary people and those with a surgical or physiological barrier to breastfeeding, but who would ordinarily have breastfed/lactated for at least 6
months in some capacity. These applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the training team.
