Breastfeeding is one of the healthiest ways to feed your baby; however, nursing, for some new mothers doesn't come naturally. A Lactation Specialist can help!
Breastfeeding is no easy task for new mothers and is a constant learning experience that takes a lot of patience and practice for both a mother and the baby. While breastfeeding has been proven to provide several mental and physical health benefits for both a mother as well as her child, it also presents several challenges for a mother especially during her early postpartum period.
Consulting a lactation specialist will help you navigate through the breastfeeding journey smoothly and get help with common breastfeeding problems such as inadequate milk production, nipple pain, latching pain, inverted nipples, clogged ducts, lactational mastitis, leaking nipples, and unusual nipple discharge. A lactation specialist will also educate you on breastfeeding techniques, baby positioning, pacifiers, pumping, and nutritional supplements.
Seeing a lactation specialist can help manage breastfeeding anxiety for new mothers and help them achieve the best breastfeeding outcome.
