Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is natural but not necessarily easy!

Breastfeeding is a new skill for you and your baby, and like all new skills, it can take some time and practice to learn. It has many benefits for both you and your baby.

 

We respect your right to choose whether you breastfeed or not, but if you’re not sure, there are experts on hand who can help.

 

Lactation consultants are available for you on the Ashford Hospital Postnatal Ward to help get you started. The Ashford Hospital New Born support service is also available for when you leave the hospital. Individual consultations are also available with the lactation consultants to support the establishment of breastfeeding.

Home support

In addition to the wonderful support Ashford offers,  Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility has an in-house lactation consultant who will arrange a postnatal appointment.
