A mother knows best, given the chance she is strong, knowledgeable and intuitive about herself and her baby
Breastfeeding your baby confidently
Mother-baby partnerships in most unobtrusive circumstances are capable of initiating breastfeeding without outside assistance. Modern ‘hands on’ assistance can interfere with intricate mammalian survival skills evident soon after birth. The handling of a woman’s breast or her baby by others' alters inherent evolutionary skills of the healthy newborn and the young baby. Interference that hurries a mother and her baby prevents them from working together at their own pace. Healthy babies are capable of, and skilled at, initiating multiple senses and reflexes to locate the breast and nipple for nourishment and emotional satisfaction. For most women the immediate link between Birth and Breastfeeding should be an instinctive ‘untouched’ mammalian event.
It's natural to want to survive
Healthy human babies like other mammals are born with the skills to survive. Women throughout the ages have managed to birth and breastfeed without many of the modern interventions. Western society stands at the pinnacle of evolutionary achievements, yet there is a rising incidence of physical and emotional trauma associated with one of the most basic and primary human life events – the birth of a baby. When birth is traumatic for the woman or her baby, the instinctive sequence for breastfeeding soon after birth is interrupted.
