When you are in the thick of it with your new baby it can feel a little overwhelming, but we want you to know that you’re not alone. We are here to support your individual journey each step of the way.
Those early days can become a bit of a blur so it’s helpful to know what normal newborn behaviour looks like and this often isn’t information that NHS maternity services will offer out. The population-level advice that is dished out is often based on formula-fed babies, rather than breastfed babies so it’s inaccurate but can also be detrimental to a woman’s breastfeeding journey.
If you are finding feeding difficult, or just want some reassurance that you’re doing a great job, one of our breastfeeding support sessions might be what you’re looking for.
You can book an online one-to-one breastfeeding support session here.
Or if you would prefer a breastfeeding peer supporter to come and visit you at your home, you can book an in-person support session here.
If you had a difficult birth and you would like to talk about this, have a look at our holding space sessions. We know that how a woman gave birth can have an impact on how she feels about breastfeeding, so this might be a useful step in your journey.
We have funding options available for anyone who would be unable to pay the fee – if this would be a barrier for you please get in touch before booking.
