Lactation Counselling

Breastfeeding contributes significantly to babies' health, growth, and development and benefits mothers. Many women need assistance to feed their babies successfully. They need encouragement and reassurance as they learn this skill.

What is so great about Breastfeeding?
  • For the first six months of a baby's life, breast milk provides all the nutrients they need to grow and develop.
  • As a source of nutrients and protection against infection, breast milk continues to be beneficial well into the toddler years.
  • It keeps babies healthy and prevents illnesses.
  • Babies can easily digest breast milk.
  • Babies' bodies effectively use breast milk.
  • Breastfeeding can increase the spacing between births.
  • Breastfeeding reduces the chances of bleeding after birth since it helps the mother's uterus contract.
  • The mother's risk of breast and ovarian cancer is lower when breastfeeding.
  • The weight of the mother returns faster to pre-pregnancy levels when she breastfeeds.
  • As a result of breastfeeding, mothers and infants form an emotional bond.

Breastfeeding counseling can enable pregnant women to get started with breastfeeding right away. Dr. Jain provides support and counseling that allows mothers and their newborns to begin breastfeeding as soon as possible after birth. This helps mother and baby stay together throughout the day and night and establish and maintain breastfeeding with proper positioning and attachment.

Providing sensitive and effective counseling is important for mothers considering or currently breastfeeding. Counseling can address the particular barriers that each individual mother faces by emphasizing how breastfeeding provides food and protection as well as comfort.
