Breastfeeding dysfunction vs Erectile dysfunction! (both health issues). This comparison is actually causing the change we moms need for healthcare (ie Viagra is covered but Lactation Consulting was/is not!)
Ask your OB your healthcare provider, does s/he offer Lactation consulting as part of her services or at least refer? Demanding this can be your early steps in parenting (as my doula/coach reminded me)!
On a sensitive note: we are here to support each other- if you are struggling - reach out! Breastfeeding is awesome but not always easy, we try our best, these health care changes can offer more support.
Also - if you try your best and your baby needs more-- in my personal opinion supplement with formula! THAT is what is is FOR to supplement as necessary! You are still giving your baby breast milk (of course - you need good nursing bras for that....wahlah Bella Materna...)
Here is a link to the article - I also pasted it below.
