Help ease soreness and discomfort, apply after feeds by massage to breast and nipple area (wipe nipples with a warm, wet cloth prior to feeding again). May also be applied during pregnancy to condition nipples, which may help to prevent cracked skin when feeding begins (massage daily to nipples and surrounding area).
- Breast Feeding
Some mothers abandon breastfeeding very early on due to the discomfort and soreness that they experience in their breasts. Generally, however, this is a short-term adjustment phase that does pass. Maternity Care: Breast Cream can help to soothe skin and assist natural healing at that vital time so that the real pleasure and benefits of breastfeeding can be fully realised.
Regular breast massage may reduce the risk of mastitis and the added therapeutic properties of Maternity Care: Breast Cream provide the perfect supportive medium. Apply daily before birth, and continue to apply directly after feeding. Massage is also very useful when mastitis does occur as it helps to clear the blockages that cause this condition.
- Sore Nipples
It takes a while for the sensitive nipple area to adjust to regular use and the effects of constant alternating wet and dry. Maternity Care: Breast Cream contains wonderfully soothing and healing ingredients that can be applied direct to the nipples to help prevent cracking and assist the natural healing process. Apply directly after feeding and wipe with a warm, wet cloth prior to feeding again.
- Beautiful Breasts
Maternity Care: Breast Cream may also be applied before and after birth to strengthen the tissues in and around your breast and to support efficient recovery when breast feeding is discontinued.
