Thank you moms for being there in every normal, mundane moment. Happy Mother's Day!
One common tweak to try, if you are experiencing uncomplicated latch issues, is a change in position to a more natural and relaxed position, often called "laid back breastfeeding."
Laid-back breastfeeding facilitates a deeper latch, helps your baby to use her feeding instincts unencumbered, and allows you to relax.
I LOVE to cook and these would be so awesome for new moms !! Easy to make but most importantly easy to EAT !! Make before baby comes and toss into the freezer. Mom's are so busy and often forget to get those meals in and this can affect breast milk. Keep those calories above 1800 cal/ day and BOOST your milk supply with these. Toss in some brewers yeast and what a lactogenic food you will have !!

I really love this! Mom's need great support once baby arrives. Just like you may make a birth plan.....make a postpartum plan!!!
Please feel free to share with someone that might need this article. Our birth experiences do not always go as planned and can sometimes lead to mixed emotions during the postpartum period. It's so important to process your event and feel validated. We can offer suggestions for support via private counseling appointments, support groups and even online groups.

If you know me, you know this is a topic near and dear to my heart. PLEASE consider donating for these studies. Wouldn't it be amazing if we could help find a cure or even identify those at risk??!!
Numerous studies suggest that breastfeeding significantly reduces the risk of breast cancer. We simply don't know why this occurs, but it seems to be true.
The InfantRisk Center is looking for participants to help us with a screening study to identify cancer biomarkers in human milk from mothers who are HIGH and low risk of future breast cancer.
We will simply ask for 1-6 milk samples. If you are from a family at HIGH risk, one that has the BRCA gene(s), we really need a sample of your milk.
Hopefully, this will someday allow us to test a mother's milk and provide her information on any future risk of breast cancer.
