Postpartum Resources: Breastfeeding (everyone is doing it)
If you have questions, are struggling to breastfeed, or would like more information you can call the La Leche League hotline 24/7 and speak with someone who can answer your questions and connect you with qualified support.
The Boob Group is a wonderful website, app, podcast, blog, and community hosted by an IBCLC. Information you can trust from an evidence-based source. Members get access to all episodes, and everyone can access the most recent episodes for free.
Worried about medications? The free LactMed app is updated daily with critical information for you, your doctor, and your pharmacist.
Blessed with an abundance? Consider donating your milk! Breast milk is used to feed infants who are unable to breast feed with their mothers for many reasons AND it is used to assist other patients with digestive disorders.
You have a right to feed and your baby has a right to eat. Pretty. Much. Anywhere. Print out this handy pdf of the statute to share with any naysayers.
You can breastfeed or pump at work in Colorado. Read the law.
Any other breastfeeding resource you can need has been compiled by the Colorado Breastfeeding Coalition.
Sleep: (everyone may not be doing it)
Need I say more? All new mothers are tired, but if you feel like your baby is not sleeping well, or if you'd like to transition seamlessly from one stage of development to another, I recommend Eileen. Her website has a wealth of resources, too!
Sensitive Issues: (no one is doing it)
You will be sore after birth, but six weeks later if you're still in pain or struggle with sex because of physical discomfort, or if you have had a Cesarean and would like assistance with scarring, please contact Lynn at Intuitive Hands PT. She works in Boulder and Denver, and she's worth the drive. She combines her extensive knowledge as a PT with her intuitive sense as a healer and is often able to help in just one visit.
