Low Milk Supply - Myths
These are free video resources, explaining areas of breastfeeding and infant feeding that are referenced and can be used for training purposes as well as for personal and public awareness.
The NHS has used some of these in training peer supporters (London 2015 & 2016) and hospital staff (Watford 2016) and I use them myself when giving talks about breastfeeding / nursing aversion. Please contact me if you cannot access Youtube at work and I will send you the video required.
Please let me know if you have used these videos and where so that I can update the website portfolio, and also contact me for requests as I will continue to make explainer / info videos looking at the most common breastfeeding challenges in order to help health-care practitioners and mothers. Feedback for use on social media has also been too great to ignore.
My next series will cover the most common difficulties I see every week as a breastfeeding peer supporter with the NHS. The next series dedicated to looking at formula, production, distribution, health effects, and company ethics.
If you have any comments, corrections or criticisms please contact me and I will do my best to address them. These resources are first and foremost meant to be useful but please be aware they are only short explainer videos so not everything can be covered in each one.
Please check references given, and disclaimers before contacting me. These videos and my position is not of 'breastfeeding only', or indeed 'anti-formula'. I am all for the appropriate use of formula but we must all make informed decisions and have access to accurate and up-to-date information to do this.
