How can pregnancy & birth affect your baby’s feeding?

Babies’ position in utero can impact the way they feed after birth, so does the way they are born. A baby who, at any point in the last trimester of pregnancy was malpositioned, can develop tensions in her body which in turn can impact on the feeding.

Additionally, the birth of your baby can play a part in how your baby will feed.

Over the years, we have found that working in collaboration with experienced cranio-osteopaths can promote a better latch, better milk transfer as well as a comfortable breastfeeding experience. No matter what you’ve heard (including from midwives!) breastfeeding shouldn’t hurt!

Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for your baby, sadly, many breastfeeding mothers & chest feeding people struggle to establish feeding due to lack of support, leaving them with a sense of failure and grief.

Getting support from a breastfeeding specialist or lactation consultant can completely change your breastfeeding journey. We will help you with attachment and positioning but also help identify any issues with your feeding and put a plan in place to support you until you are happy and the feeding is going well.
