Description
"Painful latch, delayed milk, low supply, oversupply, infections, and tongue-tie are just some of the issues that can imperil breastfeeding. Postpartum anxiety and depression can make things even harder.This book aims to help expectant and new mothers reach their breastfeeding goals and care for their babies with confidence. While new motherhood is challenging, there are ways to make it easier. A mother's mental and physical health are essential, and that is the focus of this book. The scientific literature tells us that breastfeeding creates a powerful physiological response in the mother, which protects her mental health. When breastfeeding is going well, it prompts a powerful physiological mechanism that can help minimize the stress and inflammatory responses that underlie depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Author Kathy Kendall-Tackett is a board-certified lactation consultant and researcher in breastfeeding, depression, trauma, and women's health psychology. Breastfeeding Doesn't Need to Suck is an evidence-based guide full of practical advice to enhance your physical and psychological well-being so that you and your baby can thrive.
