Getting your milk supply can be one of the toughest physical and emotional days for a new Mummy
Approximately two to four days after birth you may notice your breasts are warmer and fuller feeling; this is known as your milk coming in. Some mothers feel a tingling or pins and needles sensation in the breast. Sometimes there is a sudden feeling of fullness in the breast.
Your breasts can feel very painful, and you may even feel like you have a flu or cold. But it is not serious, and soon goes away by itself!
It is also very common to feel low or tearful a few days after birth at around the time your milk supply begins, for no reason that you can understand.
With this in mind, The Natural Birthing Company have formulated a trio of products to support new Mama’s both physically and mentally during this time, which can be tough for so many. Natural Birthing Company | Vegan Pregnancy and Postpartum Range
