Social media has made connecting with other mums easier than ever before. In fact, recent Medela research has revealed that 70% of mums use online breastfeeding support communities, groups and apps.
For example, the MyMedela app helps mums to track their baby’s key activities, while providing breastfeeding tips and access to the best nursing products.
Everyone’s breastfeeding experience is different. While it may come easily for some women, many of us experience challenges along the way. In a recent article, Olivia White from House of White reassures women that they are not alone on their breastfeeding journey.
Motherhood really is a different experience for every mum.
In April, Medela conducted a survey with over 4000 mums. Some of the main findings were that mums no longer turned to their mums as a first point of call for advice on pregnancy and that 48% of mums have experienced the “baby blues” at some point.
