My dear friend has just given birth to twin girls by c section, at 36 weeks. She would very much like to breastfeed them but is encountering various difficulties.
Both girls are pretty small and one spent time in scbu due to blood sugar issues. So far they have been mix fed but both have latch issues, the smaller one in particular.
Support in the hospital was patchy, and she has only just got home so is not sure what support there is in the community.
Does anyone know of any breastfeeding support or lactation consultants in the south (southeast) London area who might be able to help? And who preferably could do a home visit? she could really do with some practical support to get feeding going, advice about expressing or combined feeding and some emotional support too, as her confidence has been knocked by everything.
I am cross posting this in multiples.
(she knows I am posting on her behalf- her hands are pretty full at the moment! )
