Breastfeeding mother and baby

Your body starts preparing for breastfeeding as soon as you get pregnant. Nearly every woman can make all the milk her baby needs – even if she has twins. Although it’s natural, most mothers and babies need help to learn how to breastfeed successfully.

This section will give you a lot of information to help you get started and stay with breastfeeding. Your midwife or health visitor can also give you practical help to get it right for both you and your baby.
