I did some research into breast feeding groups to see what is out there, The Irish child birth website Cuidiu is excellent source of information.
I spoke to my area co-ordinator and she said that it good to go to one or two classes before the due date just to get to know the group and to get a sense of the help that is available.
They sent a newsletter out every few weeks aswell.
I hope this helps you.
Thanks a million broody chick. I was also wondering about this the other day and this will deffo help. Thanks for researching it!
we have a support thread over in Mums and Kids that has been invaluable to me, come on over!!!
The thread in Mum and kids is invaluable. I read a couple of pages and gosh i learnt so much.
The girls in my thread Medala pump review under mums and kids have advised any mum who wants to BF their LO needs to arms themselves with as much info as possibel. Some of the midwifes in the hospital are excellent in relation to breast feeding and others are so busy they have no time to help out with the early issues.
The Irish child brith trust is an actually support group that you meet each week and if you also run into problems there is a breast feeding rep that can help you over the phone or even call to your home.
Thanks for this
