Breastfeeding is the biologically natural way to provide infants with the nutrition they need for health growth and development. Breastfeeding has important benefits for both mother and child. The World Health Organization (WHO) and Unicef support and promote exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of an infant’s life (without any additional food, beverage, water or pacifier) followed by continued breastfeeding with appropriate complementary foods for up to two years or beyond. The weaning off time will be determined by mother and child. This essentially means that the breastfeed duration is up to the mother.
Certain difficulties may appear in the beginning, such as the baby not latching onto the breast due to flat or inverted nipples; baby is tongue-tied; delayed mother-child contact after birth; nipple confusion due to bottle use; breast engorgement; injured nipples; reduced production or overproduction of milk. Every difficulty has a solution! I am able to support you in order to persistently and patiently address these breastfeeding difficulties, whether you are in the maternity hospital or at home.
I offer breastfeeding and lactation support for mothers and families who need further guidance and consultation.
The consultation can take part as breastfeeding information sessions or as a private visit in the comfort of your own home.
During the consultation classes, mothers and couple will be enable to explore and learn more about breastfeeding.
For more information, check the course class pages, for each one of the offered classes:
My aim during a visit is to give you the opportunity to explore and discuss which are the problems for you and your breastfeed baby. A feeding plan tailored to your needs to help you reach your breastfeeding goals, talking into consideration your lifestyle and preferences. Of course i can answer to any breastfeeding question you have. My goal after every home visit is to leave you feeling more confident and better able to navigate your way through a ton of information, which so many parents find themselves lost into.
