Well, I would say that breastfeeding is a skill which you will need to learn
but that is easy enough. You will probably need the support of your midwife
in the beginning to advise you on a few tricks of breastfeeding. Mainly to make
sure the position is comfy and the attachment is effective. After that, your
partner and family can be a great support in practical ways ranging from pillow-positioners
to housework extraordinaire! By letting you rest you are released to concentrate
on breastfeeding. Also, by learning about the benefits of breastfeeding to both
mother and baby, they can feel happy in the knowledge that you, as a couple,
are giving your baby the best possible start in life.
Many women enjoy the support they get from fellow breastfeeders. There are
a number of peer-support groups cropping up all over the country with excellent
support and advice. These get you out of the house and might be a great way
to make new friends!
