Breastfeeding is a choice, but without the support required to achieve a successful experience, many women are left without a choice. Beyond Midwives aims to support women to achieve their chosen feeding method and offer consistent and evidence-based advice.
Breastfeeding Support Liverpool: At Beyond Midwives breastfeeding support is with an experiencedmidwife and lactation consultant. A lactation consultant is a specialist in breastfeeding education, support, and breastfeeding issues. Breastfeeding carries significant health benefits for you and your baby. Most women want to try breastfeeding but often give up due to lack of support or inconsistent advice. Furthermore, it is important to understand how the labour, type of birth, and first 24hrs following birth can impact on a successful breastfeeding journey. Breastfeeding is natural but often not easy.
If you decide you would like to breastfeed your baby, it is advisable to attend our breastfeeding workshop and be as prepared and well informed as possible. During pregnancy or following birth, you can arrange to visit our lactation consultant for support and to discuss any concerns. At beyond midwives we have comfortable feeding chairs, cushions, and pumps, with an experienced and passionate consultant to help and support you through this important journey.
One to one with a lactation consultant is a 90-minute private consultation. Following your consultation, you are welcome to stay and continue to breastfeed baby. Partners are welcome. Baby can be weighed during this appointment. Baby changing facilities are available.
