I used Virginia’s ‘Boobymilk Booster’ herbal formula to help increase my milk supply during the first few months after birth, as I felt the supply had dropped off from the initial amount (ie. my breasts were not as large and full of milk as I thought they should be). I really struggled getting used to breast feeding, it was painful and not enjoyable. But I stuck with it and once I mastered attaching my daughter correctly so feeding wasn’t painful, the formula assisted me and my daughter to get into a routine where my supply was regulated by her demand. I realised you don’t need big breasts to feed successfully, my body knew what my daughter needed. I breast fed for 13 months and I’m really glad that I was able to give my daughter a good start in her life.”
Birth means a big change, for the mother’s body, for the baby and for the family unit itself. Making sure the whole family is in good health can help you all cope better with the changes after your baby is born.
Good health practices during the postnatal period decreases the chance of postnatal depression, creates a more positive outlook for the mother, encourages bonding, makes breastfeeding more successful for both mother and baby and helps the mother’s body to work more efficiently to get back to its pre-conception state.
I can offer you treatments for:
– post natal depletion and post natal depression
– emotional healing after traumatic birth
– physical healing after caesarean section or tearing
– help with mother/child and father/child bonding
– increasing breast milk
– mastitis infections
