I’m here to help new mothers with breastfeeding guidance and support.
Welcoming a newborn into your family can be overwhelmingly joyful and immensely challenging at the same time. Once you deliver and enter the postpartum period, you may decide to breastfeed, which is one of the best things you can do to care for your newborn. Breast milk provides the most complete form of nutrition to newborns, and it is a beneficial way to help mothers bond with their new babies.
While breastfeeding is highly beneficial for your newborn, it can also provide you with benefits as the mother. For instance, your body started to naturally store fat while you were pregnant as a reserve for breastfeeding. Once you start this process, you may find it is easier to eliminate this excess weight. The breastfeeding process also helps your uterus return to is normal size as quickly as possible after delivery, which can reduce the risk of continued bleeding.
For many new mothers in the York, South Carolina area, mastering the breastfeeding process takes patience, and it can feel frustrating at first. If you choose me to be your midwife, I can provide information, education, and support as you start your breastfeeding journey. I’m also here to give you the compassionate and empathetic care you need for other key milestones during the early postpartum period.
If you’re still expecting your first baby, I would be happy to provide you with more information about breastfeeding during pregnancy to help you prepare. Then, during the postpartum period after your newborn baby arrives, you’ll have the resources you need for success. Reach out to me at Birth Choice today to learn more about how I can support you while breastfeeding and to schedule an appointment to discuss your plans for birth and delivery.
