Breastfeeding support for mum and baby

Sarah Das, the Practice Midwife at The Birth Company is an Infant Feeding Advisor and holds the qualification of International Board of Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). 

There is no doubt that breastfeeding, with its many important physical and psychological advantages is best for both a mother and her baby and is the ideal way to initiate good parent-child relationships. It is not always problem free however, and parents need a lot of support and reassurance at this time. The arrival of a new baby is in itself a life-changing event and can be daunting. Unbiased, accurate advice can help to smooth the way.

Research has shown that women who have access to good care from the appropriate health care professional enjoy a more positive birth experience and increased success with breastfeeding. We believe in respecting and facilitating women’s choice and provides information, help, and support to all mothers in the feeding and nurturing of their babies, whatever that choice might be.
