Abnormal Blood Results


Audience: GPs (all grades)

Breastfeeding has huge health benefits to both baby and mother and at absolutely no cost to the NHS. Breastfeeding is one of the best ways to reduce health inequalities in early life. People often give up breastfeeding when they don’t want to, but they haven’t been given enough support. The GP is often the first place people turn to when they need help but GPs have very little education in infant feeding.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Understand the normal patterns of breastfeeding
  • Appreciate the GPs role in supporting breastfeeding
  • Learn how and where to signpost for support
  • Discuss the management of common breastfeeding problems presenting in primary care
