Having a baby, especially if it’s your first, is an experience that is sure to bring questions, doubts and concerns. We want the best for our child, and want to be sure that we are taking the right measures and actions to ensure his or her healthy development.
After giving birth, most women also have questions about breastfeeding. They want to be sure they are doing it correctly to ensure their baby is getting the nutrition he or she needs. At times, difficulties can arise. Perhaps the baby feeds very slowly, or the mother doesn’t believe she has a sufficient supply of milk. Such difficulties lead many mothers to change to formula, often causing them great distress.
Many women report a lack of information or conflicting information while pregnant or breastfeeding. The good thing is that all of our questions during pregnancy and the breastfeeding period can be answered by health professionals – all we need to do is ask. These professionals are there to help you feel prepared for motherhood, and “Together” is there to help you make the most of the information you receive from them.
Some “Together” activities are also designed to bring women together to share doubts and concerns, and get answers to their questions in a safe and friendly environment. See what your city has to offer!
