Breastfeeding support

A lot of moms love to be able to nurse their baby. Breastfeeding is a natural consequence of pregnancy and birth. Although it is a natural process, it is also a skill you need to learn. Sometimes the start can be quite troublesome. Some moms need to overcome one challenge after the other before they are able to enjoy breastfeeding.

We notice that well informed moms have a higher chance of a good start. Therefore prepare yourself for breastfeeding during pregnancy by making an appointment with one of the midwives of Zwanger in Brussel. She will inform you, prepare you and give all the tips and tricks to get a head start. After birth the midwife will also support your breastfeeding journey.

If a encounter a difficult breastfeeding challenge, Elke, our IBCLC lactation consultant will support you. She is specifically trained in difficult breastfeeding situations and has helped numerous happy, breastfeeding moms.
