It is our experience that many questions arise when you come home from hospital. Many mothers today need help and support with breastfeeding. Partly because it is completely normal to have a difficult start where many questions arise and partly because families today are discharged from hospital sooner. This means that the advice and guidance, which is a natural need in the process of starting and establishing breastfeeding – and which previously had a high priority in the public health service – is no longer available in the same way.
This means that most families are discharged from hospital before the milk has come in and our experience is that this is when you need the most help and support.
When you are a new mum and you don’t know if you are doing things right and/or you have been given conflicting advice, you often need good advice and ideas. Maybe you had a bad experience with breastfeeding previously. Other times the need is more specific because there is uncertainty about the amount of milk, whether the suckling technique is correct, whether the baby has gained enough weight, expressing, mastitis, thrush on the nipples and several other completely normal problems which require help and guidance
We as midwives and postnatal nurse have a lot of experience with breastfeeding and newborns. We offer professional help and assistance and support and guidance regarding breastfeeding positions, techniques and suckling techniques which is so important for successfully establishing breastfeeding. This is not least an important factor in making the first time with your baby peaceful and secure. This will also give you a more content baby who therefore cries significantly less.
