If you’re expecting, and or with a newborn baby, and are looking for supportive breastfeeding tips and advice, you’re in the right place.

The role of the community that surrounds a new mother, and how they chose to support her decision to breastfeed, is vital. Generally, the greater amount of support the mother is given, the longer she is enabled and empowered to breastfeed which in turn has greater health benefits for the baby.

Today our special guest Denise Condon shares helpful tips which highlight the support that should be made available to new mums during the breastfeeding stage.
