Feeding Your Baby – What do I need to know?
Recently Coast Life Midwifery hosted an education session for pregnant mums to discuss feeding their babies.
The group of women had many questions and were able to learn from other mothers who had breastfed a baby before.
The group learnt about why it is important to breastfeed your baby, reasons why breastfeeding isn’t successful and had many questions answered.
Breastmilk is the ideal, complete food for the newborn baby and provides protection against illness and disease. It is also has added benefits for the mother and for the environment.
Breastfeeding is something new mothers have to learn and in this time a lot of support and nurturing is required to assist mothers to achieve their goals.
If you were not able to make it to this session, we are holding another session on the 13th September at 5.30pm until 7.30pm. Partners are welcome to attend this session.
