Gestalt Breastfeeding Self-help Program

What is gestalt breastfeeding?

Our Gestalt Breastfeeding Self-help Program is a new, evidence-based approach to pain-free, enjoyable breastfeeding. The gestalt model of infant suck and swallow during breastfeeding is developed out of the latest ultrasound studies of breastfeeding biomechanics.

The Gestalt Breastfeeding Self-help Program helps:

  • Nipple damage or pain
  • Difficulty latching onto the breast
  • Fussing and pulling off the breast
  • Back-arching at the breast
  • Marathon feeds
  • Excessively frequent breastfeeds
  • ‘Windy’ behaviour during or after breastfeeds
  • Poor weight gain*

  • Strategies for psychological resilience as you deal with breastfeeding problems
