Breastfeeding experiences

If you are thinking about breastfeeding your baby or if you are new to feeding your baby yourself, hearing from other breastfeeding mums can be really helpful.

There are a number of support groups and workshops that run in and around Southampton and more information about them can be found here.

On this page you will find several short films made by mums who wanted to talk about their experience of breastfeeding. If you have any questions or need some advice or help after watching the films, please speak to your midwife or support worker or find more contacts in our breastfeeding support information leaflet here.
