Peer support for breastfeeding: guidance for Scotland
This guidance about peer support for breastfeeding mothers is intended to inform professionals in Scottish Health Boards and voluntary sector agencies with responsibility for local breastfeeding support about the most up-to-date policies and evidence related to breastfeeding peer support. The resource lists evidence from systematic reviews as well as randomised controlled trials (RCTs) on the effectiveness of peer support. The resource looks at asset-based approaches to health improvement as well as national policy documents before providing evaluation recommendations.
