Feeding your baby

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life and as you prepare for the birth of your baby, it’s important to think about not only how to prepare for labour and birth but also about feeding and caring for your baby.

Breast milk is perfect and uniquely made for growing baby’s needs. Breastfeeding makes a big difference to both your baby’s health and yours – the longer you feed your baby mum’s milk, the longer you and your baby will benefit.

Barwon Health maternity staff will respect your right to choose how to feed your baby, whilst being committed to the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding.
