You may have heard that obese mothers can’t breastfeed. Don’t believe it. Breastfeeding can present hurdles for many women, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. A plus-size body type or generous breasts don’t need to keep you from nursing your baby. Whether you are dealing with issues related to body image or culture, or whether your obstacle is hormonal and related to milk supply, there’s no reason to assume you cannot breastfeed your baby.
Join Marie and guest Leigh Anne O’Connor IBCLC for insight, tips, and resources that will help ensure you meet your breastfeeding goals. If you need a little help, words of encouragement, and practical advice, this show is for you!
