- how skin to skin contact helps establish breastfeeding
- where breastmilk comes from and how to ensure a great supply
- the essentials of knowing how to express breastmilk
- what is 'normal' newborn breastfeeding behaviour

- the role of partners in the breastfeeding relationship
- what to do in special situations (jaundice, hypoglycemia, weight loss)
- where to get support

Understanding Common Breastfeeding Issues
Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed your baby! The milk is free and it is always available at the right temperature. It also contains antibodies that can help keep your baby healthy.
Visit us if you need help addressing any breastfeeding issue. Everyone’s experience with breastfeeding is different and some women freely admit it can be tricky and tiring in the first few days.
Breast milk reduces the risk of stomach, chest and ear infections.
Breastfeeding is not always easy, but a breastfeeding support group can help!
Expressing Breast Milk
If you're getting ready to return to work after maternity leave, it’s time to learn about expressing your breast milk. Expressed breast milk is much better for your baby than formula, and it helps maintain breastfeeding.
If you need any guidance to express breast milk, visit our breastfeeding support centre. We can also help you if you've decided to stop breastfeeding!
Breast milk is your baby’s natural food
