Even as a doctor, I was very unsure and confused about breastfeeding until I had my son. I'm not a lactation consultant but I breastfeed my babies for over 1 1/2 years each, worked, and still managed to donate extra milk. I get a lot of questions about the transition back to work, managing pumping and keeping up your supply. This is the advice I wish I would have had!
Breastfeeding is totally a choice but I want to support those moms that want to nurse their babies. This is not about shaming moms who choose to use formula, but instead about making sure women who want to breastfeed are able to for as long as they choose- whether it be a few months or a few years.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be very beneficial to help throughout pregnancy and postpartum recovery.
