Getting help with breastfeeding - Useful contacts

If you're finding breastfeeding a bit of a struggle, it's worth getting some expert help.

Getting a bit of extra help with breastfeeding

Breastfeeding isn't always easy to begin with, and it’s natural to feel a little anxious. After all, you and your baby are on a steep learning curve!

If you're finding breastfeeding difficult or if you're thinking about giving up, it's well worth speaking to a health professional first; it's not easy to go back once you've made the change.

Ask another mum

Mums who are experienced at breastfeeding can be a huge source of support and useful information. It can also be a relief to find out that other mums have been thinking or feeling the same as you!
