While a lot of mums have intentions of breastfeeding their baby, sometimes it just doesn’t seem to come naturally and you may need a bit of help to iron out any issues or problems. Not being able to breastfeed can be a real source of anxiety for many mums, in particular those who have just had their first baby, so it’s always a good idea to seek out a support service if you do want to pursue breastfeeding. There’s no right or wrong way to feed your baby as long as they are getting fed – after all, a fed baby is a happy baby, but if you do need some breastfeeding help, here’s where you can find support groups in Birmingham.
