They give up their time to help new mothers take their first steps into parenthood.
And now a dedicated team of Breastfeeding Peer Support Service in Great Yarmouth and Waveney have been thanked at a special celebration.
The event was held at the James Paget University Hospitals' Burrage Centre on August 3.
Kay Horn, infant feeding co-ordinator and midwife, said: 'We want to thank you for all your hard work.
'We now have just over 30 volunteers who work on the wards and in local baby cafés and support groups in the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft area and we are grateful that you give up your time to do this as we know the mums and staff at the hospital really appreciate it.'

She said: 'One said if it wasn't for the team she would have given up, that the volunteers provided someone to talk to and just knowing she wasn't alone helped, while another said that it was every mother's right to feed however it suits them, and they provided an amazing service.'
