I am a Midwife, Lactation Consultant and Certified Infant Massage Instructor. I have a real passion for helping new mums in the first few weeks after birth gently settle into their new role as a mum. Becoming a parent is the most amazing time in a life but it is often fraught with difficulties because we are overwhelmed with so many paths to take.
Our society is slowly accepting normal birth to be ever more a medicalised event, but how many of us actually question how this may impact the natural processes of feeding and caring for our babies in the long term?
I hope this blog of thoughts and research will provide sound information to enable mums to make informed choices on how they parent their children.
