Welcome to BreastStart
Congratulations on your new baby! As a mother, one of the best things that only you can do for your baby is to breastfeed. Breastfeeding is more than a lifestyle choice — it is an important health choice. Breast milk protects babies from illness and infection and promotes their brain development. Any amount of time that you can breastfeed will help both you and your baby. Every mother has the potential to succeed and make breastfeeding a wonderful experience.
If you need local support while breastfeeding please call:

Did you know that a newborn baby experiences a growth spurt around 2 weeks of age? A new breastfeeding mother will need extra support around this time. If you are a friend and would like to support a new breastfeeding mother, download and print this card, select how you want to support her and give her the card before her baby is born. That way she can look forward to your support when she needs it most.
