Locations of Australian Breastfeeding Association Counsellors, who are assisting the Victorian mothers.

There have been 14 volunteer counselors from across Australia involved in providing counseling to the mums in the trial.  We thought it would make an interesting post to show the geographic spread and distances between counselors and the mothers they are supporting.  

Through technology the counselors no matter where they are physically located have been able to share their specialist knowledge about breastfeeding with the mums.  This has been able to take place in their homes right when they have needed the guidance and help the most. 

These vast distances make the technologies and the video capabilities all the more impressive and useful.
