I am a fairly hands-on person – I like to fix things myself if I can. Where I can’t fix a problem on a vehicle, I speak to a mechanic. When I can’t fix a problem with plumbing, I call a plumber. So when breast feeding didn’t get established as easily as I though it was, I called a lactation consultant. Sarah came as quickly as possible, calmed all four of us down, identified and sorted the problem with no fuss. We attended our local breastfeeding group (run by Sarah), with me holding the other child. I expected to feel uncomfortable as a man in a distinctly female environment, but was always made very welcome and included. Our continued commitment to breastfeeding our twins is largely down to Sarah’s calm confidence, knowledge and easy manner.
