A new phase in a woman’s life begins when she becomes pregnant and bears a child. Caring and feeding your newborn should be a special time of bonding and discovery. For some mothers though, breastfeeding pose problems and pain. Through private lactation massage and coaching sessions with Coach Z, mothers could enjoy and breastfeed their babies with confidence.
Breastfeeding strengthens the bond between a mother and her baby. To help the mother breastfeed her baby with ease and confidence, a lactation massage and coaching session is done 3 to 4 hours after giving birth. Coach Zeny first applies a cold compress before massaging the mother’s breasts to stimulate milk production and help unclog milk ducts. All these are done in preparation for baby’s first breastfeeding, for easier latching of baby to the “breast and areola” and good milk flow.
Techniques and methods are also given to the mother to help her gain confidence in breastfeeding her baby; she is taught the different breastfeeding positions as well as how to burp a baby. It also includes assessment of baby’s sucking and latching, and, assessment of the mother’s breasts to check whether they are engorged or lumpy or if there are clogged ducts causing inflammation.
A session with a breastfeeding coach could spell the difference between a successful breastfeeding experience and a frustrated one for moms who are new to breastfeeding and even those who have breastfed before yet still struggling with it.
The Lactation Massage and Coaching Sessions could be conducted one-on-one immediately right after giving birth at the hospital, in the privacy of your home or at our lactation center.
