Breastfeeding Booklet and other helpful information

Prepare for breastfeeding before the birth

Our website has useful information to help support you with your feeding choices. We also recommend speaking to you midwife as they can tell you about local antenatal classes. This can provide you with more information about breastfeeding and give you the opportunity to meet other mums expecting a baby at the same time as you.

The Baby buddy app allows you to create your own digital buddy who can support you throughout your pregnancy and early parenthood up to 6 months.

Read our breastfeeding guide for new mums for helpful information on breastfeeding during the first few weeks.
