Care for Breastfeeding Struggles

Being a new mom is hard – balancing caring for baby, scheduling appointments, cooking/cleaning, the list goes on!

Don’t add difficulties with breastfeeding to that list! Our team of pelvic health therapists at Apex Physical Therapy and Wellness Center is here to help decrease the stress and questions surrounding breastfeeding. Whether this is your first or fifth child, every breastfeeding experience is different and can pose many different questions or situations – let US help YOU ease the burden in your postpartum journey!

How Do I Know When to Ask for Help with Breastfeeding?

Every new mom’s situation is unique – if you’ve met one mom who’s breastfed, you truly have only met one mom who has breastfed.

However, there are several signs and symptoms to watch out for when breastfeeding your baby. Some signs and symptoms to watch out for (but not limited to) are redness/irritation throughout the breast and chest, fever, chills, skin on breast/nipple is warm to the touch, swelling, pain and/or altered function of the breast or nipple during feeds. If any of these symptoms arise, call Apex Physical Therapy and Wellness Center so we can assess your symptoms and set you up with a treatment plan, to ensure your breastfeeding experience is better for both you AND baby!
