Midwives, health visitors and trained local volunteers (peer supporters) are there to help you get breastfeeding off to a good start. They can give you lots of information and support when you need it.

You can contact your midwife or health visitor between your usual appointments if you need to speak to someone.
You could also go to your local drop-in baby clinic to see a health visitor face to face.
You should find contact details for your midwife or health visitor in your baby’s personal child health record (PCHR), known as their “red book”.
Ask them to show you the page when you first get it.

家事をする – パートナーが赤ちゃんの世話に集中でき、授乳がうまくいくようにするためです。
