Breast-Cancer Survivors Can Breastfeed!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Guest blogger Kate Tuttle: Happy cancer news! Sounds like an oxymoron, right? But apparently it's not: In the past few days, the media has been all over the new studythat suggests that, for many women who have survived breast cancer, breastfeeding is both possible and healthy. This is news because in the past, many such women received stern warnings from their doctors that breastfeeding after breast cancer was a no-no.

According to Dr. Hatem Azim, the Belgian doctor who conducted the study, "It is a pity that women are denied the opportunity ... and newborns are denied the endless benefits of lactation due to fears not based on any evidence."

As reported inTime Magazine,Dr. Azim and his colleaguesfound that many women who didn't breastfeed after breast-cancer survival had been told by their doctors not to. But among those who did try, breastfeeding was possible -- even in breasts that had undergone a lumpectomy. As a result, the doctors now urge that such women -- like all mothers -- seek and receive support for breastfeeding.

In a world full of scary medical news, it's nice to see something good for a change.

Everyone knows the benefits of breastfeeding. But many including lactating mothers are looking for excuses to avoid breastfeeding.
This study should encourange more healthy people to practice breast feeding.
