How much help will I need to breastfeed?

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!
