Breastfeeding is not always as easy as they say. Statistics show that many mothers find it so difficult and painful that almost 50 per cent give up within the first six weeks.
Conflicting advice and a lack of sound practical help that actually works is usually the biggest hurdle facing new mothers.

Clare is totally realistic about the ups and downs of breastfeeding and aims to provies this much-needed help.
Clare has taught parenting skills and the art of breastfeeding to more than 3,000 mothers. She is a breastfeeding guru whose name is passed on through word of mouth by grateful clients who regard her as an indispensable part of parenthood.

'There is so much b*ll*cks talked to new mothers about breastfeeding - everyone has an opinion and most of them seem to conflict. Clare Byam-Cook is a great solution - she takes away the old wives' takes, the nonsense and the guilt, and makes the whole process work as it is meant to' - Emma Freud.
'Without Clare I would have fallen at the first hurdle.' - Annabel Heseltine.
'Whenever I refer patients to Clare I am confident that if the problem can be solved, she will solve it.' - Royal Physician Dr Tim Evans.
I just love this video. It helped me a lot with my second baby as, even though he is number 2, [he is] my first breastfed baby. Had sore cracked nipples and looked all over for proper positioning of baby. I didn't like the cartoon versions on how baby supposed to latch on as that didn't help me much in where baby was supposed to lie at. After watching this video it was a lot easier for me and it boosted my confidence!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS VIDEO! - Rabea Rohde
