The birth of a baby brings with it a lot of joy but also a lot of worries, especially for new mothers.
Will I be able to be a good parent?
Will I be able to ensure the health and well-being of my little one? Are there any behaviors I should avoid?
These are just some of the questions that those who have found a new life in their arms for a few hours can ask themselves.
Especially for those in their first pregnancy, doubts and fears can be so many.
Often we are consoled by thinking that before us many women have experienced the same anxieties, first of all our mothers and our grandmothers.
However, today science offers us a lot more information, able to reassure us and provide the answers to numerous questions.
The maternal gesture that can ward off osteoporosis and decrease the risk of breast and ovarian cancer
What just ended was World Breastfeeding Week, promoted by WABA (World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action).
The purpose of this annual event is to raise awareness among the public and expectant mothers on the importance of breastfeeding.
The task of promoting actions in this sense is up to local and governmental bodies.
The Third National Conference on Breastfeeding will take place at the Ministry of Health on 12 October, to be followed also in live streaming.
Breastfeeding, for those who are able to breastfeed, is a source of love and nutrients for the little ones and health for the mothers.
This is explained by the Ministry of Health which underlines all the important “pros” of this extraordinary “mechanism” of nature.
In fact, this is the maternal gesture that can ward off osteoporosis and decrease the risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
The extraordinary benefits for babies and new mothers
According to ministerial sources, there are many benefits for both the child and the mother.
Breast milk is in fact rich in properties and substances essential for the correct development of the baby and its immune system.
It is now known that for the newborn in the first days of life and for the first six months, breastfeeding is the most complete and nutritious form of feeding.
Despite the sacrifices it can entail for new mothers, it is important to emphasize all the benefits as well.
In fact, it seems that natural breastfeeding is able to reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis and prevent some forms of breast and ovarian cancer before menopause.
There is therefore no gesture of love, care and comfort for the baby and healthy for mothers better than breastfeeding.
