San Lactation Consultant Alison Edgecombe on radio 2GB

This week is World Breastfeeding Week (August 1st- 7th) and the theme for the week is “Empower parents, Enable Breastfeeding”- recognising that the World Health Organisation advises that exclusively feeding babies breast milk is the best nutrition with children less likely to develop various diseases, and achieve better cognitive development, while also helping mothers recover from childbirth and reduce future health problems.

Well of course the professionals who can help new parents learn to breastfeed when their first baby is born are the midwives and lactation consultants.

From Sydney Adventist Hospital where over 1800 babies are born each year, midwife and lactation consultant Alison Edgecombe was interviewed on radio 2GB answering some of the most common breastfeeding questions.
