Breastfeeding help at hand during the lockdown period

Breastfeeding is something that we are passionate about at BabyWombWorld, and we try to provide good quality support and information to mothers on their breastfeeding journeys.

But for many breastfeeding problems, women really need to see a lactation consultant. Finding help can be difficult under the best of circumstances. South Africa’s current lockdown situation and Covid 19 outbreak, unfortunately, means that these services may not be available as always. The outcome of this may be that many women stop breastfeeding.

We have tried to compile some resources that may assist you with the most common breastfeeding problems. We hope that this makes your life just a little easier, which is the motivation behind all we do.

First choice – Seeing a professional

Contact our in-house lactation consultant Christine Klynhans, who is part of the South African Certifed Lactation Consultant (SACLC) network of professionals across the country and may be able to locate someone to assist you in your area. Alternatively she may be able to assist with an online consultation. You can send an email to
