Breastfeeding Support

Many pregnant women and new mums don’t realise the wealth of support available to them when they are making decisions about breastfeeding their baby. Breastfeeding makes a difference - right from the first feed but often breastfeeding mums need everyone’s support.  Partners especially play in important role in helping mums continue to breastfeed.

Breastfeeding groups can give great support to new mums, so why not check out your local group. You can get information, and the groups are a great place to meet other new mums. You can also chat to some mums that have breastfed to find out about their experiences.
