    This article is an example of a collaborative partnership approach between a multidisciplinary team in a joint antenatal diabetes clinic and a mother with type 1 diabetes. The whole team supported this woman from pre-conception, throughout her second pregnancy and postnatally to help her experience the harvesting of colostrum in the antenatal period and enable a positive breast- feeding outcome for her newborn daughter. This experience has harnessed the working practices of the specialist team, including the midwife, diabetes specialist nurse and breast-feeding coordinator, where the sharing of knowledge and practice has enabled appreciation of professional roles.
