TweetFacebookFood for thoughtA BENDIGO mother’s experiences with breastfeeding have started a conversation about infant and maternal health.

Bendigo Health lactation consultant and midwife Rebecca Keating said mothers couldn’t always exclusively breastfeed, for a range of reasons.

“She shouldn’t feel bad, in any way,” she said. “Every mother’s feeding journey is different.”

She was hopeful people within the community could be open minded and supportive,and encouraged mothers to consultlactation consultants and maternal and child health nurses withany questions about breastfeeding.

”There are definitely challenges that come up in the first six-weeks [after birth],” Ms Keating said.

She said mothers could make asmany appointments with a lactation consultant as neededwithin those first six weeks.

After then, Ms Keating said maternal and child health nurses were the best source of support.

She said most women who gave birth at Bendigo Health, especially new mothers, were keen to give breastfeeding a go.

The hospital runs classes, even before birth, to help women learn more about breastfeeding.

Ms Keating said there were many benefits to breastfeeding, for boththe baby and itsmother.

They ranged from the antibodies contained in milk to a readily available, sterile food supply.

Speaking on behalf of the Public Health Association of Australia,Associate Professor Lisa Amirbreastfeeding was critical to providing babies with optimum nutrition in early life and wasclosely linked to infant and maternal health.

Australian and World Health Organization guidelines recommend exclusive breastfeeding of infants in the first six months of life.

However, Associate Professor Amir saidonly 15 to 25 per centof Australian mothers were meeting this recommendation.

“The vast majority of Australian mothers (over 90 per cent) initiate breastfeeding after birth, but many of them stop within the first six months,” she said.

“While breastfeeding is not always possible, it’s vitally important that new mothers who can breastfeed receive better support and education to do so”.
