Breastfeeding issues

Acupuncture and Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding can be a wonderful way to bond with your baby, and it is undoubtedly the best start you can give your new addition, but it can also be a difficult and painful experience for new mothers, which often (sometimes unavoidably) results in the abandonment of the breast for the bottle. Acupuncture and acupressure can be very helpful in the management of breastfeeding problems such as insufficient lactation and mastitis.  It is important, however, to seek prompt expert advice on feeding positions and the correct drainage of the milk passages from the outset of breastfeeding, and as soon as any issues are experienced, to assist this process as much as possible.
