Gentle Birth Midwifery

Breast feeding your baby was the way that God designed your body. It's natural, and the best for your infant. It helps to bond with your infant, assists with immunity for the baby, and provides optimal growth and neurological development. Other benefits of breast feeding are: protective against communicable diseases, leads to better teeth/jaw development, protects against bacteria, meningitis, provides protection against neonatal sepsis, and is the very best for a premature or low birth weight baby.

Infants that are nursed get sick less often which means they are in the doctors office and hospital less often, they have a lower risk of diseases which include: diarrhea, gastrointestinal, and urinary tract infections. They also have a reduced rate of infections of the upper respiratory tract, less ear infections, less pneumonia, neonatal sepsis, giardia,and less incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Everyone knows that breast is best, but do you know that no matter how hard man tries, they can not make a formula that is any where equal to breast milk! Your milk is made for the baby that you carried, at the age of the child when the baby is born. By this I mean that if you deliver your baby too early, your milk will have things in it that is special to that premature baby. Just what the infant would need. No formula can do that.

Mothers who breast feed benefit by a special bond that is between you and your baby. It provides you with a way for your uterus to 'go-back' to its pre-pregnancy size, yes you will have cramps as this happens, but you will also have less bleeding. It also burns up calories, which means that you loose your pregnancy gained weight faster. Mothers who breast feed have less cancers-breast, ovarian, and cervical. It's cheaper, less money into formula, it is convenient (no making bottles in the middle of the night), provides the mother with a hormone-induced contentment (you feel that warm fuzzy relaxed feeling), it contributes to natural family planning, fosters confidence and promotes self-esteem.

I will be there for you to help you and answer your questions.
