Supporting Maternal Confidence

There are many factors which can influence successful outcomes in a breastfeeding relationship. Factor like what is normal in your community of support which can include:

  • What stories have you heard about breastfeeding success, and failure?
  • Resources in your hometown, like breastfeeding clinics.
  • Medical professionals who can provide good and timely help, or know where to send you to get it.
  • The community of support available to the parent.
  • Advertizing influences, and more.

In this presentation, we will look at the factors for breastfeeding success by examining one family’s journey through pregnancy and breastfeeding.
