Being a Nursing Mom: Dealing with Lactation Problems


mastitis-treatmentMotherhood starts with pregnancy. It is a long and crucial stage, in which the mother needs to take care of not just herself, but the health of the baby in her womb as well.

It also leads to various changes in the expectant mom’s body. Aside from a growing tummy and the inevitable weight gain, one of the common changes that takes place is the lactation of the breasts. It is a natural preparation of the mother’s body for the baby she’ll nurture in the future.

These physical changes will not disappear even after a woman gives birth to her child. But while the weight you gained may disappear after some exercise and diet, it will take a while before you stop lactating.

Unfortunately, this leads to some discomfort for some nursing moms. There are instances in which moms suffer from lactation problems. Some women suffer from lactation disorders such as low milk supply, or from Mastitis during pregnancy and post-partum.

Moms with low milk supply, for instance, have what is a symptom of insufficient energy (called Chi in traditional Chinese medicine) in the blood. Stagnation of energy is said to prevent milk from flowing out of the nipple.

Mastitis, on the other hand, is the stagnation or blockage of chi which leads to breast engorgement, distention and pain. Both of these things cause discomfort among nursing moms, but fortunately there are ways to relieve them from these problems.
