Breastfeeding has numerous health benefits for both baby and mother, but may not always be an easy process. For the past fifteen years, I have dedicated my practice to exclusively treating mothers and babies with medical issues related to breastfeeding. The most common complaints encountered are pain, non-healing nipple wounds, infections and low milk production. The good news is that with the proper guidance, diagnosis and treatment the majority of these issues can be resolved and breastfeeding can continue comfortably.
Getting help for your breastfeeding problem can sometimes be challenging. Using my years of experience in the field, I have compiled the articles and photographs in this site to help you find out the cause of your problem and to guide you and your healthcare provider with an appropriate treatment plan.
Take a look at the Problem List below. You can click on a topic or if you are unsure of your diagnosis, click on a symptom and you will be guided in the right direction.
I hope this site makes it easier for you to reach your breastfeeding goals.
