[ARTICLE] Essential Baby: January 11th 2017: The breastfeeding photo that says it all.

Amanda Bude, a midwife from Groovy Babies, says it’s common for women to feel elated when their baby finally starts feeding, especially if it doesn’t come easily at first.

“It’s like winning a gold medal!” she says – because establishing breastfeeding is often far more difficult than mums expect it to be.

Amanda says there are many factors that can contribute to these difficulties.

These include having a complicated delivery, past breastfeeding troubles, and a lack of support.

To combat breastfeeding issues, Amanda says education is key.

Before having your baby she recommends antenatal breastfeeding classes – both for yourself, and your partner.

She also advises seeking support through positive breastfeeding groups on social media, and joining groups such as the Australian Breastfeeding Association.

[ARTICLE] Essential Baby January 4th 2017: US Updates Guidelines on delayed cord clamping benefits

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has just released new guidelines regarding cord clamping after birth.

These new recommendations advise delaying umbilical cord clamping for all healthy infants for at least 30-60 seconds after birth.

Instead of clamping a baby’s umbilical cord straight after birth, it means delaying the process to allow the blood that’s still pulsating in the cord to transfuse into your baby, as midwife Amanda Bude, from Groovy Babies, describes.

Amanda says delaying clamping can increase your baby’s blood volume by approximately 30 per cent. This can then lead to a reduced need for blood transfusion after birth, providing your baby with “four to six months of iron [reserves]”
