Nursing mothers

You are currently breast-feeding and are experiencing irregular cycles or an absence of periods while waiting for your return from childbirth. Your menstrual pain and premenstrual symptoms (PMS) may vary. Breastfeeding can disrupt regular menstrual cycles, leading to variability in symptoms and flow.

  • Your menstrual profile

    Your periods may be irregular or absent during breastfeeding. You may also experience white discharge and sometimes spotting. The perineum may be more relaxed, and slight urinary incontinence may occur. Long feedings may also trigger uterine contractions of varying strength in the days or weeks following delivery.

  • Hormonal profile

    Breastfeeding affects your prolactin levels, which can inhibit ovulation and disrupt regular menstrual cycles. Hormonal fluctuations can also influence your mood and energy levels. Milk production is also influenced by hormones such as prolactin and oxytocin. It's essential to consume around 500 extra calories a day to support milk production, and to watch out for any signs of hormonal imbalance. Consultation with a healthcare professional is important for proper management.

  • Diet

    Follow a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients to support your energy and milk production. Eat foods rich in iron, calcium and protein, such as green vegetables, dairy products and lean meats. Include foods known to stimulate prolactin, such as oats, fennel seeds, fenugreek and almonds. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and increase your milk production. Increase your calorie intake slightly to meet the extra energy requirements of breastfeeding, around 500 extra calories a day.

  • Skin and hair care

    Use moisturizing and nourishing products to offset the fatigue and stress of breastfeeding. Choose gentle, strengthening hair care products to keep your hair healthy. Also moisturize your breasts, which are subject to considerable variations, to prevent stretch marks. To nourish your skin simply and without endocrine disruptors, opt for natural oils such as sweet almond oil or coconut oil. Choose unscented or lightly scented products to avoid upsetting your baby.

  • Sports activities

    Before undergoing perineal reeducation, it's important to take it easy and avoid carrying heavy loads. Prefer light activities such as walking and strolling with your little one in a baby carrier, if your back allows it. If your baby allows you to be away from his human pantry (you) for an hour or two, take the opportunity to do some yoga or gentle swimming (several weeks after delivery to avoid the risk of infection). These activities are good for your health, without putting too much strain on your body in the post-partum period.

  • Aurélie, 28 years old

    "I chose to breastfeed my baby and it's been a wonderful experience, even if the early days were a little complicated. I had the onset of mastitis after a few weeks, which caused me a lot of pain and fever. Fortunately, with the help of my midwife and a few changes to my breastfeeding position, I was able to overcome this problem. I also used hot compresses to relieve the pain. Today, breastfeeding is going very well and I'm happy to see my baby growing up healthy."

  • Typhaine, 34 years old

    "I breastfed my son for two years, and also practiced co-nursing with my daughter born eighteen months later. Long breastfeeding strengthened the bond with my children and brought them a lot of comfort. It wasn't always easy, especially with two children to breastfeed, but with good organization and the support of my partner, we succeeded. Feedings were moments of calm and connection for us, and I'm very happy I made this choice."

  • Gwenaëlle, 35 years old

    "Breastfeeding has been an incredible adventure for me and my baby. We practiced co-sleeping, which allowed me to respond quickly to his needs without getting up. This made night-time breastfeeding easier and gave me more rest. The first few weeks were difficult with fatigue, but co-sleeping really helped make breastfeeding more manageable and less stressful for both of us."

  • Audrey, 37 years old

    "Breastfeeding my baby was a beautiful experience, even if it required a lot of dedication. The nights were particularly difficult, but always having a bottle of water and a packet of cake to hand helped a lot. I often found myself stuck on the sofa during baby's naps, but it was also a time of calm and connection for both of us. My husband was extremely supportive, taking over so that I could rest. To stimulate and maintain my milk production, I was also careful to stay well hydrated and eat a balanced diet. Thanks to this support and these practices, I was able to continue breastfeeding serenely, pumping my milk even after I went back to work. My breastfeeding lasted a total of 11 months <3"
