I am a long time fan of Susan's work and I love reading the blog posts now that I get them through Facebook. I am a lactation consultant in private practice and have a very holistic approach to my work. I love supporting mothers with nourishment and herbs and other holistic approaches for all phases of lactation. I did want to add to one of the above replies that stated, "Breastfeeding can prevent menses from starting up again, but since you are having periods, no, your breastfeeding would not be a concern." In some mothers, they may have a menstrual cycle but the hormones of lactation may in fact impact the length of the luteal phase, etc and may make conceiving more challenging. When a nursing mother is having trouble conceiving oftentimes herbal support is all that it takes, acupuncture can be great too. And of course, if you have questions about herbs during lactation or other issues, seeking out a holistically minded lactation consultant can be a great addition to your self care plan.


Wonderful news!
