Breastfeeding has enormous health benefits for both mother and baby, and is the most natural and healthiest way for a mother to feed her baby, providing the baby with the best start in life.
Don't just take our word for it!
Social and Support
There are lots of places to meet other mothers, discuss baby care and feeding with peers, seek professional advice or solve breastfeeding problems, if they develop.
NHS Grampian has a Facebook page for information called 'Breastfeed Grampian' but you will also find other local groups and pages online with discussions and support from other mums.
There are also lots of breastfeeding groups throughout Grampian. Please ask your midwife or health visitor for information, or search for your area at: www.babyfeedingmatters.co.uk.
