What to expect
Breastfeeding while being natural is also a learned skill especially for a new mother
Some women breastfeed with no complications from the first moment of attachment but many may meet bumps along the way!!
After giving birth a mother is often tired , sleep deprived and emotional, it isn’t always as easy as it looks!!
Don’t worry if it doesn’t work as you expected it to, there is plenty of help & information available. Like a lot of things it takes time and practice.
