New paper | Perinatal support for breastfeeding using mHealth: A mixed methods feasibility study of the My Baby Now app

The My Baby Now app was developed by researchers from Deakin University, The University of Sydney, and RMIT University. The app provides breastfeeding support to women during pregnancy and the early post-partum period.
