How does stress affect breastfeeding?

Having a baby changes many things in life and can cause some stress and anxiety around providing the best care for your baby. It is like a never-ending quest of nurturing, always looking for the best ways of child-rearing, support system, healthcare consultants, and even breastfeeding support services.

Although breastfeeding is a normal and natural way of feeding your baby, it can sometimes bring stress. This is especially true if you are feeling that breastfeeding isn’t working the way you think it should.
