Lactation Support

What is lactation support?

Lactation support refers to medical assistance and expert guidance to help you with breastfeeding. Many women value having medical support when it comes to breastfeeding their newborns.

Breastfeeding provides your baby with many health benefits. Breast milk contains the right balance of nutrients during their early development to help your newborn grow into a strong and healthy child.

In today’s hurried world, breastfeeding can present difficulties for many mothers. But almost all problems encountered by a new mother during breastfeeding can be remedied with the right medical support and information.

Why would I choose lactation support?

Women choose lactation support for many reasons. You might choose lactation support if you feel completely overwhelmed by breastfeeding or if you’d just prefer to have medical guidance.

If it’s your first time breastfeeding, you might also be interested in learning as much as you can and receiving valuable medical support.

What are the benefits of breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding offers many benefits. Babies find breast milk easier to digest. The hormones, cells, and antibodies in breast milk protect babies from illnesses like asthma, eczema, Type 2 diabetes, respiratory infections, obesity, and more. Breastfeeding also reduces the mother’s risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, postpartum depression, and Type 2 diabetes.

With breastfeeding, you don’t have to worry about buying, measuring, mixing, and warming formula. In many cases, breastfeeding can save you money. Breastfeeding also gives you the benefit of physical contact and bonding with your newborn.

In most cases, mothers who breastfeed lose their pregnancy weight faster, and their uterus and birthing canal recover faster than women who don’t breastfeed.

The Lapeer Pediatrics team can also educate you on how to live a healthier lifestyle and optimize your nutrition, to improve the health of you, your baby, and the quality of your breast milk.
