If you're planning on breast/chestfeeding or are currently on a breast/chestfeeding journey this episode is worth your TIME!
I invited Lisa Thompson (a fellow welsh birth worker) to the show to chat about her expertise and she generously shares so many amazing resources and tips. Topics also include Tandem feeding and Expressing.
Favourite quote from the show was: "It's a way to continue growing their baby in a beautiful way"
We also chat about the most common myths and old wives tales associated with breast/chestfeeding and touch on neural pathways!
Find some quiet time and grab a notepad & pen and then hit PLAY!
