M&H start with a listener question addressing which breastfeeding-friendly birth control options are best for lactating parents struggling with PCOS.
What exactly is PCOS and what does it look like? Could you have it and not even know it???
Join M&H for a complete discussion about breastfeeding with a PCOS diagnosis. Symptom management, levels of severity, risk factors, affects on milk supply, and the light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, this episode covers the most up-to-date research on breastfeeding with PCOS and highlights the research that needs to be done in the future.
M&H close out the episode with an “Award in the Alcove,” because they love you and think you are doing great!
A note about future episodes: “We’ll get into obesity and breastfeeding in another episode; please send us your questions!”
