Antenatal breastfeeding session - Feeding your new baby
We want to make sure you feel really prepared for getting breastfeeding off to a good start, and there is lots to talk about. Most pregnant mums have heard stories from friends and relatives about breastfeeding, both true and false.
‘Feeding you new baby’ gives you a chance to sort out the myths from the truth, and decide what is best for you and your baby. The session is delivered by our breastfeeding specialist, who has helped hundreds of mums in Highfields to succeed in breastfeeding.
During the session we look at -
Our feedback shows that mums who attend the sessions are more likely to succeed in breastfeeding and feel more confident.
Second-time mums, or those who have more than one baby already, but who did not manage to breastfeed as they would have liked to, are encouraged to come along. Many mothers who thought they could not breastfeed have found it is possible with the right information, encouragement and support.
