education sessions

can’t find the time to attend a workshop? no problem. mumsmilk now offers individual sessions for you (and your support team) at a time and place that suits you. perhaps you’d prefer to book a group session with your pregnant girlfriends! mumsmilk can help you with all you need to know to feel prepared and ready for a great breastfeeding experience.

the evidence is clear. mums (and dads) that participate in breastfeeding education before baby arrives, have an easier and more successful breastfeeding experience with their babies. it makes sense. once baby arrives, you may feel a little overwhelmed. so learning all about breastfeeding while you are still pregnant is the way to go. ideally before the last trimester. having prepared and informed yourself, you will definitely feel more confident in breastfeeding your baby.

our individual sessions can be held in your home or in our rooms. they are all about sharing with you the information you need to ensure the best possible start to breastfeeding your baby. want to find out more? click here to read more.

continuity of care

we believe in providing our mums with real continuity of care throughout their breastfeeding journey. we’ve seen the benefits of our approach and we’re proud to provide mum & baby with this care including:

  • antenatal education during pregnancy
  • breastfeeding care and support following birth (in hospital or home)
  • breastfeeding care and support during the first weeks

mums with continuity of care throughout their breastfeeding journey tend to achieve better breastfeeding outcomes including:

  • increased confidence
  • preventing complications such as attachment issues, nipple pain and damage, engorgement, mastitis and low milk supply
  • avoiding conflicting advice provided by numerous well-meaning carers
  • providing emotional and informative support
  • reducing the potential for postnatal depression
