ANTENATAL - BEFORE THE BIRTH OF YOUR BABY

Antenatal - before the birth of your baby


It's good to find out as much as you can about breastfeeding before you have your baby. It may help you feel more confident when you start breastfeeding your baby.

Before the birth of your baby you will have a number of appointments with your midwife where you will have the opportunity to discuss feeding your baby along with a variety of other topics.

The ISPHN service offers parents a antenatal contact and or home visit to help you prepare for early parenthood as well as provide information about feeding your baby and the support available with feeding after the birth.

You will also receive a call from your local children's centre to invite you to book onto ante-natal parent education and discuss any questions you have around feeding, caring for and developing a close and loving relationship with your baby.
