#Podcast: The first days of breastfeeding.

#Podcast : Les premiers jours de l'allaitement.

In this podcast, lactation consultant Carole Hervé gives you all the keys you need to make the most of breastfeeding. The first few days - essential to getting breastfeeding off the ground - can sometimes be difficult, punctuated by doubts and questions on the part of young mothers about breastfeeding. And rightly so.

  • How can you prepare yourself physically and psychologically to make the most of breastfeeding? Should I be accompanied to the maternity hospital?
  • Is it possible to breastfeed after a Caesarean section?
  • What are the main complications/physical pains I may encounter?
  • How do I know if my baby is suckling effectively?

Often, when you're pregnant, you prepare for childbirth (by taking courses or even just doing some research), but you're not necessarily prepared for breastfeeding. However, lactation consultants and other professionals are there to help you. Breastfeeding isn't always innate, nor is it easy from the start, so don't hesitate to ask for help if you're not sure how to go about it.

By the way, whether you bottle-feed or breast-feed, the choice is yours, and it's your choice that's best for you and your baby. The most important thing is to be well supported, by those around you and/or by professionals, and to be aligned with your decisions.

If you'd like to know more about this subject, or if you'd like some support, you can get in touch with Carole Hervé and/or consult her book "Mon allaitement sur mesure".
