On this week’s episode of Sisters Without Shame lactation specialist Emma Numangolu unpacks the emotional and psychological benefits of breastfeeding.

Parenthood is filled with a rollercoaster of emotions. From hormonal changes to sleep deprivation to feeding choices for your baby, your life and emotions may seem to be all over the place all the time.

Not only is breast best for baby’s health but it could do wonders for your mental health too says Numangolu. She is a mom first and a registered nurse and midwife with specialised interests in lactation.
