Feeding Debrief

Our personal experiences naturally colour how we view the world and can impact on how we support families, particularly with very emotive experiences. This is a one to one session with one of our IBCLCs to talk through your own infant feeding experience(s) with the aim of helping you to understand what happened and begin moving forward more positively.
