New moms will be presented with a slew of challenges as they care for their babies and the Breast Start app hopes to mitigate some of them for peace of mind as well as the health of all involved. Created by the Wirral Community NHS Trust, it connects parents with NHS professionals to answer any questions, solve any problems and provide an overall guide to this new chapter in life.
Providing access to modern tools, the Breast Start app is incredibly comprehensive. Clare Whitehead, Wirral's Infant Feeding Lead, says, "As a service we have developed a strategy for utilising modern media and reaching those who are hard to engage with core services. We now provide a range of data that is accessible to any client any time, but has the guarantee that it is research based."
