Extra help is on hand for Doncaster mums who find they are struggling with breastfeeding.
A Specialist Breastfeeding Support Team is in place for mums who are breastfeeding their babies over ten days old who find:
· Either of them are admitted to hospital.
· They are visiting the GP or out of hours medical care because of problems with breastfeeding.
· They have already had support from the local health visiting service but still can’t get to grips with breastfeeding.
The service is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).
Paula Cafferty, who is RDaSH’s Infant Feeding Co-ordinator, said: “If you are having problems feeding your baby for one reason or another, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
“Breastfeeding is a great start for babies – and good for the mum too – so please persevere and give our team a ring for further support.”
Anyone requiring additional help should call our specialist team on 01302 566776.
