Wyong DoCS prevents mothers from breastfeeding consequently deliberately HARMING NEWBORN BABIES: Government guidelines prove this.

This mother was left haemhorraging and with placenta still intact after DoCS Workers Tim Goble from Wyong and the Entrance DoCS ripped the baby from mums arms when she was just 2 hours old and still in the delivery ward.  You would think this too disgusting to comprehend but mothers and their children these days have less rights than animals, and DoCS workers think its okay to do this when even animals are left for a good six weeks before they are weened from their mum.

'Breastfeeding as a determinant of child health and well-being Food, or more specifically one’s diet is a principal determinant of health (Marmot and Wilkinson 2006). Conversely, inappropriate nutrition is a major burden of disease and therefore a significant public health issue (Marmot and Wilkinson 2006).

Breastfeeding is the best form of infant nutrition and is supported worldwide (Labbok 2006; Brodribb, 2004). The World Health Organisation recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life and continued breastfeeding for 2 years and beyond to improve the health and well-being of children but to also have a significant role in reducing health care costs from ill health (WHO 1989).

Breastfeeding is recognised internationally as the ‘physiological standard’ for growth and development for human infants (Brodribb 2004:15; Lawrence and Lawrence 2005). Indeed breastfeeding and breast milk are essential components for normal physical and cognitive development, with both immediate and long term advantages.

The benefits of breast milk for human infants are well documented and include optimal nutrition, enhanced immunity, optimal neurological development, reduced risk of respiratory and gastrointestinal infection and reduced long term chronic conditions such as atopy and asthma (Akre 1989; Brodribb 2004).

Furthermore, breastfeeding has many positive effects for the health of women, including reduced risk of postpartum haemorrhage, birth spacing, and reduced risk of breast and ovarian cancer (Labbok 2001; Brodribb 2004; Lawrence and Lawrence 2005).

[Wallace Bicket - Case Manager from Wyong DoCS prevented this mother from breastfeeding - it is common practise for DoCS to do this, yet it is well known how detrimental it is to both mother and child.  ALECOMM is looking for more mothers to come forward to list what DoCS workers have deliberately abused your newborns and endangered your health for a class action against this type of abuse of both mother and children.  We know there are many of you mothers out there whom have had such attrocities committed against you and we urge you to comtact us.  Or even use the comments section below to name your DoCS Caseworker who doesn't give two shits about your babies].

Breastfeeding is an important component of mother–infant attachment and bonding and is a valuable resource for societies worldwide to maintain (Minchin 1987; Riordan 1997; Palmer 1988). The alternative to breastfeeding is formula feeding. Breastfeeding and feeding with infant formula are not equivalent, and it is now recognised that there are risks of not breastfeeding.

Infant formula has been directly attributable to increased infant morbidity and mortality around the world (Bar- Yam 2003; NHMRC 2003b). Whilst breastfeeding is the best way to feed human infants, there are alternative infant formulas on the market and the choice of how to feed their own child rests with the mother and father.

Breastfeeding is a natural component of the reproductive ability of women, and all women have the right to embrace their reproductive abilities as they choose (Labbok 2006).  It is therefore clear to say that mothers have a right to breastfeed their own children for as long as they choose (Labbok 2006). Indeed mothers should remain free to make informed decisions to feed their infants as they wish, without the encumbrance of outsiders interfering with this right (Kent 2004; Akre 2006).

Therefore women should not be legally obligated to refrain from or to prematurely cease breastfeeding. The decision to breastfeed or not is integrally connected with an individual’s values and beliefs about nutrition, infant care and parenting. However the primary barrier to breastfeeding is society, ‘from individuals attitudes and how they are formed, to unsupportive health services, to the multiple unhelpful ways society is often structured’ (Akre 2006:20). Societal attitudes and values about breastfeeding are responsible for producing and sustaining the complex systems that interfere with an individual’s choice on infant feeding (Akre 2006).

When considering individuals’ rights and the best interests of children, it is therefore a societal responsibility to support breastfeeding whenever and however possible (Labbok 2006). Indeed support and   encouragement from family and friends are benefi cial, but it is broader than merely family support. Society, through cultural practices, government strategies and legislation has an important role in protecting breastfeeding.

The Australian Government has an endorsed public health nutrition policy, known as the Australian Dietary Guidelines which were last updated in 2003. In both the guidelines for adults (NHMRC 2003a) and for children (NHMRC 2003b), breastfeeding is espoused as the optimal food for children, exclusively for the fi rst 6 months of life and then continuing for at least 12 months and longer, as long as mutually desired by mother and child. Indeed, the guidelines ‘encourage everyone to support and promote breastfeeding’ (NHMRC 2003a: viii).

Furthermore organisations such as the Australian Medical Association, the Royal Australasian College of Paediatrics, the Australian College of Midwives and the Dieticians Association of Australia all pledge support for breastfeeding. The ‘total value of breastfeeding to the community makes it one of the most cost effective primary prevention measures available and well worth the support of the entire community’ (NHMRC 2003a:240)'.


IT IS COMMON DoCS WORKERS PRACTISE TO STATE THERE WAS "A MIXUP' WITH DIRECTIONS GIVEN TO NURSING STAFF ON WHETHER BABY WAS TO BE BREASTFEED OR ABUSED.  Don't think you are alone, we already have 5 other mothers in the past few weeks whom are having their babies abused by Caseworkers such as Wallace Bickett and Sonya Baxter from Wyong DoCS.
