At Holistic Babies London, we are aware that breastfeeding sometimes comes with its challenges.
This is why we are here to help wherever you are in your breastfeeding journey.
We cannot under-estimate the importance of knowledge when it comes to breastfeeding. We offer one to one workshop, colostrum harvesting and answer the questions you may have, using evidence based informations.
We offer support in the form of home visits, video calls or phone calls to assess breastfeeding and help you tackle challenges you may meet.
Early on support is key to successful breastfeeding and this can be achieved through continuity of care.
All of the Newborn Care Specialists at Holistic Babies London are experienced in the field of breastfeeding. Our success rate is over 90% at 6 weeks postpartum (versus UK statististics of 24% in England). Some of us have even specialised in the field of lactation.
We know that the sooner we tackle challenges and help you establish supply, the better you & your baby will do!
Very few women cannot breastfeed (1%), we know that the sooner you get support, the better it will be for you and your baby.
