The article below bears exciting news about breastfeeding benefits to the nursing mom. Many of us know that “breast is best” for baby, but this study indicates a correlation between nursing and many added benefits for moms as well. It iss a long running observational study conducted by a reputable institution. The study shows that women who breastfeed can lower their risk of heart disease, type-2 diabetes, postpartum depression and will see their metabolism normalize sooner after birth than mothers who do not breastfeed. I’m a firm believer in the thought that what created us makes no waste, so its nice to hear that breastfeeding is more than just a source of “free food” for baby and is so beneficial to mammas as well.
