Abstract:

Growing evidence continues to demonstrate the benefits infants derive from breastfeeding, and the connection to natural births and breastfeeding is made apparent; however, mothers may misunderstand. They may mistakenly believe they must sacrifice in order to give their infants the best start in life. Childbirth educators can help mothers understand how they, too, may personally benefit from natural childbirth and breastfeeding. These mother-infant needs are not competitive; instead, they are synchronous.

Keywords: breastfeeding; childbirth education; natural childbirth
