Breast Feeding Support

Fee: S$80/hour

Although breastfeeding is ?natural? it is not purely instinctive.? Breastfeeding is a learned skill ? learned by both the mother and the baby.? If a mother and baby are helped at the start they are far less likely to have breastfeeding problems later.

A postpartum doula can help you with any of the following:

  • Make breastfeeding successful right from the beginning that is the first few days from birth
  • How to read the clue when your baby is hungry
  • Sore or bleeding nipples
  • Engorgement
  • “Fussy” baby
  • Advice on proper latching
  • A baby who never seems to stop feeding or sleeps at the breast without sucking vigorously
  • A sleepy baby who does not wake to nurse
  • A baby who chokes and sputters at the beginning of a nursing
  • If supplements have been suggested and you’d like to supplement while still encouraging breastfeeding
  • When baby is separated from mummy, for example, in the case of jaundice treatment
  • Low milk supply
  • Massaging latching breasts
