General breastfeeding support
We notice that well informed mothers have a higher chance to a smooth start. That is why we advise women to contact one of the midwives of Zwanger in Brussel during pregnancy. She will help you prepare for breastfeeding, give you tips and tricks and visit you at home once the baby is born.
Breastfeeding can be very nice. A lot of mothers love being able to feed their own baby. Although it is a natural consequence of pregnancy and birth, it is a skill you have to learn. Unfortunately this is not always without problems. Come and see the lactation consultant to talk about your specific problem.
Problems that can occur:
- pain during feeding
- cracked nipples
- too much milk
- not enough milk
- baby does not grow well
- how to combine pumping and working
Even if you did not see us during your pregnancy, you can contact a midwife or lactation consultant of Zwanger in Brussel. Contact us to make an appointment at your home or in our office.
You are also welcome to come to our weekly Babyboost to meet other breastfeeding mothers!
Elke is a certified IBCLC lactation consultant.
