In Denmark the number of women who is able to establish a well functioning breastfeeding is decreasing. One of the reasons is the increasing number of women whom are sent home right after childbirth. This can result in readmission to the hospital due to dehydration, malnutrition or jaundice. We have developed a program for guidance 24 hours a day and we are developing an online/a video course and writing a book to help women establish breastfeeding. We have already helped a large number of women and hope to make it a standard that all women who wish to breastfeed will have the tools to make it happen.
