My name is SINEAID BROLLY. I gave birth to my toddler when I was a teenager and had a lot of problems with breastfeeding. After six months I put her on the bottle and felt very apprehensive about breastfeeding in the future. I have since attended the peer counsellor training and now feel confident in the ability to breastfeed successfully and would love to encourage and support other mothers in this wonderful natural process.
