I was well supported by the Lactation Clinic at Box Hill, but disappointed to find out that they are unable to support women beyond 3 weeks after birth. So many women experience challenges breastfeeding beyond 3 weeks and many may give up without professional support. I needed support with my first babies until 12 weeks and am thrilled that I breastfed them both for a year. I really think the hospital should reconsider this policy and extend the time that women are able to access lactation services after birth.
