Health professionals need support to breastfeed/chestfeed, like anyone else. The GP Infant Feeding Network lists resources for medical parents.

There is a Facebook group offering peer to peer support for breastfeeding/chestfeeding doctors.

If you have had a difficult breastfeeding/chestfeeding experience as a health professional it's important to come to terms with this in order to offer the families you work with unbiased advice - health professionals may have worse breastfeeding/chestfeeding outcomes than expected, perhaps due to intensity of work demands, and this is correlated with strength of human milk feeding advocacy.
