Case 1.6: Breastfeeding Plan on Day 3 Postpartum

Now that you’ve watched Parts 1 through 5, you are an expert in postpartum breast exams, breast massage techniques for engorgement, latching a baby asymmetrically for a deeper latch, and hand expression of colostrum.

We close out this case with a summary of what was covered to ensure that the patient understands the next steps in management.
