Breastfeeding is a very healthy option for your baby. If you choose to breastfeed your baby, then ideally you will want to do so confidently and successfully. A smooth, informed start is more likely to ensure a positive experience overall.
Marta at Maternity Consultancy offers breastfeeding support as a part of maternity nursing service.
There is no need, however, to book a maternity nurse if you only need help and support with breastfeeding. Marta will be happy to give you advice on attachment and positioning, teach you hand expressing and answer any questions you might have about how often to express to how long you can store breast milk for. She will advise you what to do to avoid cracked nipples and engorged breasts during those first few days or weeks after birth.
For your convenience advice is given in your home but also in the hospital. One visit lasts slightly longer than the feed to ensure you get all the advice you need. Hourly bookings.
Please feel free to contact Maternity Consultancy if you have any questions or are experiencing problems with breastfeeding. If Marta is unable to help she will refer you to a lactation specialist.
