Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding

In pregnancy, a woman can expect to have conversations about feeding her baby and ‘connecting’ with her baby. You will be given an opportunity to discuss the benefits and management of breastfeeding with a midwife before your baby is born.  Information on breastfeeding can also be found in:

  •  ‘Off to a good start' booklet

  • Birth to Five Book Chapter one “Feeding Your Baby”

You and your baby may require some assistance at the start.  The Midwives and Maternity Support Workers are there to support you on your journey.   Breastfeeding local support groups are also held throughout the Northern Trust area. Ask your midwife for details.
