The challenges of breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is a skill learned by both mother & baby, which takes time. Prenatal Baby Prep with Milk early parenting support, is designed to make your Breastfeeding & early parenting, empowering!


Speak to any new mum & they will tell you that they are surprised to learn how challenging breastfeeding is to begin with. Most expect breastfeeding to just happen naturally, but it is far from the truth.

Newborns are hardwired to breastfeed & most mothers are fully capable of breastfeeding.


There is a magical recipe that aids breastfeeding success - the golden key is to learn about it before your baby is born & if not, you can gather your ingredients as you go (much harder, but not impossible)


Milk early parenting support provides Prenatal Baby Prep, which is designed to equip you with all the ingredients you need to aid that magical recipe to breastfeeding success. Being a new parent without a roadmap is like being dropped in the middle of the jungle & just learning to survive - add that to sleep deprivation & it's a recipe for avoidable stress for you & your family

Here's a sneak, peak at what we cover as well as what it takes to successfully breastfeed...

  • A positive & open mindset - set your mind up for success - 'I will breastfeed' instead of 'I'll see how I go'

  • Be educated, informed & empowered - know what to do to set yourself up for success, learn about what is involved with breastfeeding, & create an action plan to navigate any challenges that may arise

  • Learn about normal newborn behaviour & life with your baby during your fourth trimester - if you know what is normal Vs unwell baby behaviour is, you will be prepared, empowered & more confident to deal with your fourth trimester in knowing what to expect

  • Gather your village - who are your resources? There are more available than you think!

  • What & who can you outsource to, to help lighten the load of early parenthood?

  • Which birth Interventions impact breastfeeding & how can you negate them

  • Your different feeding options including bottle-feeding

  • What to expect during the first week with breastfeeding - body changes, baby behaviour, feeding/changes in baby wees & poos

  • Skin to skin contact & why it's vital no matter how you feed your baby

  • Baby Sleep & Settling strategies


As I mentioned, that is just a taste of what's on offer with our Prenatal Baby Prep.

We can support you in person at our clinic in Bundoora VIC 3083 or via Telehealth so you can relax in the comfort of your own home!
