What will you do if you or your baby need special care after the birth?
While you are still in hospital
What are your plans for breastfeeding?
What do you want to happen or not happen?
having your baby always with you
requesting that your baby not be given any formula supplements without your permission
if you need to express your colostrum or milk, no use of bottles
if there are concerns about baby's weight, that you are fully informed and are given strategies for more frequent breastfeeding.
How can your partner (or accompanying person) support you to establish breastfeeding and advocate for you with your medical team if needed?
If you are expecting your baby to have special care or medical needs, or if there are reasons why you may not be able to be with your baby straight after the birth, please contact an ABA breastfeeding counsellor. They can help you tailor the breastfeeding plan to suit your particular needs.
