For Antenatal Education
The antenatal period is ideal for providing mothers with vicarious learning opportunities what they would have learned in a culture where successful breastfeeding was the norm. Women in western cultures understand that breastfeeding is best for their baby but rarely see a newborn baby successfully attaching at the breast. You can provide this vicarious experience by showing mothers good video footage of successful latching behaviours. You can also demonstrate those behaviours with a doll and your own body.
In the immediate postpartum period – Resolve Breastfeeding Problems
Follow Me Mum can help mothers recognise and resolve positioning and attachment problems by identifying the steps they are having difficulty with while providing appropriate modelling and explanation to help her effectively adjust her behaviour.
