When New Zealand first went into lockdown, breastfeeding specialist Aani Sherwin wondered how she was going to be able help struggling mothers.
She needn't have worried - like many others, she harnessed technology, old and new, to overcome any difficulties presented by being unable to offer face-to-face advice.
''I ring them and some I can just talk through [issues] with them; with others, it's all done virtually,'' she says. Aani leads Ngā Kākano's breastfeeding support service, Mama Maia.
