They say it takes a village to raise a child and yet too many mums report that, when it comes to their breastfeeding experience, they felt totally alone. This feeling of isolation might have manifested due to difficulty breastfeeding, lack of preparation on what to expect, unrealistic expectations, external pressures or a general lack of trust in one’s own instincts. Whatever the reason, breastfeeding is not a solo journey but one that you can take accompanied thanks to Jo Everatt, a qualified midwife, experienced lactation consultant and founder of both Breastfeeding & Baby and Antenatal & Baby.

Living away from Belgium?
Don’t worry, our services are available worldwide via Breastfeeding & Baby.
Breastfeeding & Baby believe that every new mum should feel continually supported, which is why we’ve developed a platform that offers support away from the traditional follow-ups. Thanks to our inclusive packages, new parents and their babies are not left alone right after that first latch but supported through the early days and the months that follow. This includes weaning, preparing for a possible return to work and even subsequent pregnancies.
