Our specialist infant feeding midwife has created a series of useful videos to support you to ensure your feeding journey is built on good foundations, using evidence based resources.
Alongside these videos there are QR codes displayed in the maternity unit and continuity hubs for you to access. These link to Unicef resources focusing on hand expressing, antenatal colostrum harvesting and breastfeeding after gestational diabetes.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding infant feeding, please email our dedicated feeding team for further support firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this is not a 24 hour service.
