Breastfeeding is not a difficult thing to do; after all, women have been doing it for hundreds of thousands of years. It does, however, take a bit of practice, and it is much easier to learn if you have someone to copy. It is even easier if you have watched your own mother or other women breastfeeding as part of your growing up.
In the UK, women have often had little contact with breastfeeding until their own baby is born, so they have to do their learning all at once. The mothers you will see, filmed in the breastfeeding clinic in Oxford, have all volunteered to help make the learning process easier for other mothers by illustrating both what to do and what to avoid.
The film utilizes slow-motion, freeze-frame and computer animation techniques to focus on good positioning and attaching the baby to the breast.
The DVD includes full chapter navigation, slide show, a still frame library, and twenty preview clips of other popular Mark-It Television titles.
