Breast feeding benefits for mom - Mothership Milk

Breast feeding benefits for mom

The benefits of breast feeding babies are well known, but today we wanted to share some of the maternal health benefits that extended breastfeeding provides! For example, research has demonstrated a 30% reduction in the risk of premenopausal breast cancer - a true testament to the myriad wonders that extended nursing affords both mama and babe.

But wait, there's more! Extended breast feeding also:

🛡️ Shields against other types of cancers: including a reduced risk of ovarian, uterine, and endometrial cancers.

🦴 Fortifies Bone Health: and prevents osteoporosis, ensuring mothers maintain strong and healthy bones.

🧘‍♂️ Promotes overall well-being : The benefits don't stop there! Extended breastfeeding may also help reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease and post-natal depression.

Whether you breastfed for 1 minute, 1 month or 1 year, we celebrate you this #worldbreastfeedingweek and always!
