Planning to breastfeeding your baby is a wonderful decision for the long term health, development and growth of your child. There are many health benefits for mothers and babies when breastfeeding. Partners and other family members are important in supporting breastfeeding. Knowing what to expect and what support is available is also important when panning to breastfeeding your child.

Your partner helping with the 4 am feed. Your best mate always happy to talk. Granddad keeping the older kids entertained. Mum doing the dishes. Getting your Breastfeeding Family ready will make sure you have the support you need to give your baby the best possible start in life.

Lots of support whenever you need it.

Whether you’re looking for advice, support services or someone to talk to, you’ll find them on this website, as well as lots of helpful information for your partner and friends.

With all this help and support behind you, breastfeeding can work for you.
