Breastfeeding Support by Jemima Doku, Private Midwife
Over 20 years’ Experience
Jemima has helped many mothers fulfill their desire to breast feed, giving them the necessary knowledge and advice to ensure they enjoy this rewarding and unique experience. On occasions, mothers encounter problems, such as difficulty with attachment, pain when feeding or concerns about their baby getting enough breast milk. This can often lead to feelings of failure or regret, but Jemima’s expertise and empathy means she is able to offer advice about breastfeeding skills during antenatal sessions, which will give you the confidence to breast feed after birth. These sessions cover important aspects such as:
- Attachment and suckling
- Position of your baby’s head during feeding
- Expressing and storage of breast milk
- Frequency of feeds and feeding patterns
- The causes and treatment of Mastitis
- Leaking and soreness
High Standards of Care
Jemima will guide you through the challenges and rewards of breastfeeding and her high standards of care and attention will mean this is a precious time for you to bond with your new baby.
She is fully insured by the Royal College of Nurses during the antenatal and postnatal periods. Additionally, Jemima is a member of the Federation of Antenatal Educators (FEDANT).
Some new mothers choose formula feeding, which is a decision that we totally respect. Jemima can offer impartial advice on this method of feeding to support parents on the safety of the preparation of formula and to be a listening ear.
