As Mum’s ourselves, we know what an intimidating prospect feeding your baby can be. Whether you opt for breastfeeding as Sam did or, if you can’t like Aly, the chances are you will attempt breast-feeding at some stage of motherhood.

So, we decided to draw up a list of all the questions we had when it came to breast feeding and put them to Sharon George from the London Lactation Consultants, so that we could ensure that you had the best advice possible in an easy to digest format.
We are not saying ‘Breast Is Best’, what we are saying is that if you have any questions about breast feeding, we hope our breast feeding series might help you to answer them.
In the eighth installment from our breastfeeding series, Sharon answers “Is it safe to breastfeed with implants?”
Is it safe to breastfeed with implants?
Yes, it is safe to breastfeed with implants and many mothers do so very successfully.
Women can have implant surgery for a variety of reasons and this can obviously influence their experience with breastfeeding.
If, for example, the implants were required due to concerns about lower levels of breast tissue or breast shape then it may be helpful to review this with an IBCLC Lactation Consultant and consider your options before or after your baby arrives.
