Lactation support

Breast feeding is the natural first choice when it comes to nourishing your new baby. Some new babies have read all the right books before birth, and know just what to do when they snuggle into Mum’s breast for the first time.

However it’s more common for the first breast feeds to involve learning skills and adjusting to new sensations for the woman and her baby.

The midwives have many years’ experience supporting Mum and baby breast feeders as they get started together, and if needed we can refer you to specialist lactation consultants for additional advice.
