BISC: Breastfeeding Information and Support Cornwall

BISC - Friendly non-judgemental peer-to-peer support

We are a network of volunteers who give information, guidance and support to parents for feeding their babies with human milk and formula. Peer Supporters are trained by Cornwall Council (or Real Baby Milk) and are all parents who have breastfed their babies. Peer supporters are welcoming, non-judgemental and well-informed.
