Thank you for choosing Families and Babies (FAB’s) antenatal breastfeeding course.

We want to give you the information and confidence to enjoy breastfeeding your baby (and all from the comfort of your own home!) We would love it if your partner or other supporters joined you in your journey, that way they can help to support you in the early days.

As you work through this course you will learn about

  • How breastfeeding works
  • How to hold your baby for breastfeeding
  • How to know if it’s going well
  • What to expect in the early days
  • How to express and store your breastmilk
  • Some of the benefits of breastfeeding
  • Frequently asked questions
  • Where to get support

And lots more.

While breastfeeding is natural it doesn’t always come naturally – research shows that support in the early days can make a huge difference to a woman’s breastfeeding experience.

You can access more breastfeeding support and information in the following ways:

You can also ask your midwife, health visitor or at your local children’s centre.

This course was developed by Families and Babies (FAB) Wakefield.

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the local mums who gave us permission to share their amazing breastfeeding photos.
