How soon will I be able to feed my baby?

As soon as the delivery is complete and you feel ready. This may be before the placenta comes out, or after you have had a shower and the baby is checked over. If all is well, it''s really up to you. Your baby does not need to feed straight away, so if bottle feeding, this can wait. Establishing breast feeding as soon as possible will give you confidence and both you and your baby comfort. See how you feel. If it important to you to try as soon as possible, write it in your birth plan so that your midwife knows this is a priority for you.
