Breastfeeding is a simple and natural process, but you may need support and information on the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems and overcoming any difficulties that may occur. Knowing other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. Having accurate, up-to-date information is also important. Attending the Breastfeeding Support Group meetings can help you learn about breastfeeding from other nursing mothers. Mothers share not only their questions and concerns but the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. Open to any woman desiring more info on breastfeeding.
