Mother and Baby DVD is in two parts and has recently been re-formatted. The first film (16 minutes) begins with a brief historical note explaining how women in the past often did not breastfeed. Additionally, it discusses the impact of supporting breastfeeding women in today’s world, especially concerning conflicting advice.
The film then shows a consultation between Sue Cox, Lactation Consultant, and a new mother who plans to breastfeed. The video showed a baby finding the nipple immediately after birth (a planned caesarean). And later, the “correct attachment” is explained as the mother feeds her new baby.
The bonus film (19 minutes) explains what new parents can expect from their baby in the first week of life, day by day. This video includes their feeding and sleeping patterns, bowel movements and general behaviours. The first film is beneficial for parent education programs, and the second can also be used for staff training.
