Breast feeding support
Breastfeeding might be the most natural thing in the world, but your baby has never done it before and it is most definitely a learned skill. One which requires not only knowledge of how breastfeeding works but also an understanding of the challenges that may arise.
There is a wealth of information out there, some of which may be very helpful and some of which may not! Google can be a double edged sword. These infant feeding workshops help you find the right information for you, your body, your baby and your choices.
You probably know people who have breastfed for some time, perhaps they have achieved their feeding goals, perhaps they haven’t. The fact is many mums who decide to breastfeed may not achieve their goals and may stop before they are ready to.
Post natal support for new mums, especially around feeding is woefully lacking. Birth can be challenging enough, once home with a new baby it can seem insurmountable to continue breastfeeding.

My experience as a mother trying to feed babies
As a Daisy perinatal educator and mum of 2 children I have a wealth of experience and knowledge to help you achieve your goals. My first breastfeeding journey was tough. My little girl was born a bit sleepy as a result of opiate medication I had in labour. It meant she struggled to latch. There was nothing physiological about the way people kept trying to force my breast into my baby’s mouth. There were cups, pumps, tears and guilt. It was hard! I felt an almost constant low level of panic and worry about everything.
Second time round and my chunky 8.7lb boy born at home latched on without even a second thought. I was thrilled! Aspects of this breastfeeding journey were so much easier, others weren’t. My strong let down meant my boy suffered from reflux, but I didn’t know it was due to my let down. He was on medication and again there were tears, crying and much puke! Eventually everything calmed and I fed him for nearly two years before gently weaning him when I was ready.
I carried a third baby as a surrogate for two friends. I knew the benefits of breast milk so I was keen to give him as much as I could. I exclusively pumped for 5 weeks and was able to donate milk to the baby and have enough to donate to a milk bank and another mum in need.
