Getting Started

For some mothers and babies however, breastfeeding is not so easy.

If this is the case there are:

  • post-natal nurses,
  • midwives,
  • lactation consultants,
  • General Practitioners and
  • breastfeeding counsellors

who can provide guidance on breastfeeding technique, breast and nipple care, and ongoing assistance and support for mothers and babies.
