Breastfeeding Support Services

How Helpful is Breastfeeding Support Service?

What do you think about when you see a healthy infant giggling and playing around? It takes a mother’s milk to get a newborn fatless child into a cute bundle of joy. Breastfeeding has a lot of benefits for an infant and the mother. As much as it has benefits, it may start with some challenges. There are many benefits of breastfeeding besides the obvious one that has to do with nourishment.

Breastfeeding strengthens the bond between a mother and her baby. A newborn can identify its mother as the caregiver and protector. Also, a mother develops a sense of what it means to be a mother and understands the baby’s needs at different times. Some other secondary benefits of breastfeeding are that it helps a mother lose baby weight to restore her body and heal. All the body fat accumulated when the mother was pregnant is used to produce milk for the baby.

For mothers having a hard time adjusting to breastfeeding, there are always breastfeeding support services. These services are often available at the clinics where they have deliveries and externally, such as in agencies and the likes. Breastfeeding support services come in handy for new mothers in the first five days after delivery. The mother can learn how to read different questions from her child and how often she should feed the child.

A mother also learns how to take control of her milk supply. Any issues that may occur when a mother should be breastfeeding are taken care of by breastfeeding support services. When a mother involves me in her breastfeeding journey, I help her identify the areas to tune-up to feel more in control. I create a design or develop a plan that will help mothers through the journey of motherhood.

Breastfeeding in itself is a challenging factor, especially for new mothers. Breastfeeding and working mothers are especially tricky subjects to handle because there is a disparity between providing and creating the much-needed bond between a mother and her child. So how can a working mother ensure that she is on top of things without experiencing burnout?


  • Involving family

The good thing about involving the family is that they get to know the mother’s schedule and how they can make it happen. They also play an essential role in caring for an infant when the mother is away by keeping track of the feeding schedule.


  • Rest

One factor that may hinder successful breastfeeding is anxiety and stress. After a long day at work, take time to cuddle with the baby as you both rest—dedicate most of your free time to rests rather than housework.


  • Have a milk bank

Breastfeeding and working mothers go better when there is sufficient storage for pumped milk. After pumping or expressing breastmilk, it should be placed in a refrigerator in clean containers for later use when the working mother is at work.
