It's important to start thinking about breastfeeding
During pregnancy, your midwife may ask about your intention to breastfeed. Sometimes this is as early as at your antenatal booking visit. To prepare for this you may like to do some reading about breastfeeding, see our list of suggested resources.
If this is your first baby, it can sometimes be hard to think beyond the birth of the baby. If you have a partner or other support person, start talking to them about breastfeeding early in your pregnancy.
