Wanting Your Birth Partner With You During Childbirth: I am 33 weeks in my first pregnancy- my partner thinks he’d be more useful at work than with me in the ‘early’ stages
Q&A: I’d like to ask other mums who may have had a similar experience for advice on reestablishing breastfeeding. My son is just 10 weeks old and I am currently trying to reestablish breastfeeding after stopping for a little while.
Q&A: For my first birth I opted for an epidural and it was unsuccessful (only numbed my legs). I’m due with #2 in a few months and am tossing up whether to have another epidural or not.
Q&A: I would love to mix feed but I literally get 30ml from both breasts if I’m lucky in an expressing session. Does anyone in a similar situation have some advice? How can I stop baby refusing formula from bottle?
Q&A: My 8 month old bf baby has always been fed on demand, fed or rocked to sleep and settled back to sleep on the boob at night. He used to Sleep through the night but since about 5 months he’s progressively waking more and more ( up to 4 times through the night). I need help with how to put him to sleep without rocking.
Q&A: my 3.5 month old always needs to be rocked to sleep, will suck constantly on his thumb, boob or fingers but refuses a dummy. Would like tips on how to teach baby to self settle as he gets so restless if we don’t help him to sleep.

Q&A: I only gave birth 4 days ago and my milk has just come in about a day ago. I haven’t been able to express or breastfeed due to the pain. Anyone else been through this? What were your experiences when milk comes in? Any tips would be appreciated as they are very painful
Q&A: Does anyone have experiences only feeding from one breast per feed? My 5mth old only has 1 boob per feed (every 2 hours) and she’s been like that since about 12 weeks. At around 12 weeks she would take the 2nd side after being burped from first side and would spew it all back. She’s just content on 1 per feed
Q&A: I’m 14 weeks pregnant with baby number 2. The last two weeks my belly has really popped out and I feel this is very early. Did anyone experience your baby bump popping early with baby number 2?

Q&A: I’m 23 and I have two kids. I’m married to their father but I find myself avoiding telling people that I’m a mum because of all the judgement. Has anyone else experienced young mum judgement? Sometimes I just don’t know what to say to people’s rude comments.
