Big Breasts Can Breastfeed

It’s a fact of life: breasts change their shape during pregnancy. As a woman’s body expands to hold the growing life within, so too do her breasts typically expand to accommodate what it takes to feed the baby to come. If the girls in your mirror are much larger than they used to be, it may be hard to imagine how breastfeeding is going to work. But it can; breast size or shape is not a factor in success. As you settle in with your baby, you’ll want to know about good breastfeeding positions, body image, and what to look for in a good, supportive bra that meets all of your lifestyle needs. Join Marie and special guest Robin Williams, MA, JD, IBCLC of Bosom Buddies, for discussion of the ways breast shape can change during pregnancy and lactation, the physical challenges faced by mothers with large breasts, and strategies to ensure breastfeeding success, regardless of breast shape. Tune in to hear Marie’s top 5 tips for the big-breasted nursing mother.
