Comfortable attachment and early days support
This session will provide you with information and support for getting breastfeeding started and comfortable in the early days and weeks after giving birth.
Breastfeeding is a learned skill, for mums and babies alike. Our sessions will offer you practical skills and support to help you and your baby in establishing breastfeeding and adjusting to life as a new parent.
Learn online with other new parents, as our breastfeeding educators and counsellors share tips and techniques to make life with your newborn easier.
