Health Tip: Prepare for Breast-feeding
(HealthDay News) -- Preparations for successful breast-feeding begin during pregnancy.
The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions for new moms who want to breast-feed their newborn:
See your doctor regularly for good prenatal care. Discuss with the physician your breast-feeding plans, your mental and physical health, and any medications you take.
Find out how the hospital is prepared to help with breast-feeding just after delivery.
Take a breast-feeding class, and think about meeting with a lactation consultant before delivery.
Talk to others who have breast-fed for advice and support, and consider joining a support group.
