Hello breastfeeding "experts", I need you expertise!
I am doing a presentation about PND in my community, and as someone who has experienced both a traumatic bf experience (which certainly contributed to my PND) - and a lovely second experience, I would like to talk about breastfeeding in relation to PND.
Could someone in here point me towards some reputable resources that explore the benefits of bf for women with PND? Some scientific information would be fantastic!
I have a resource that PANDA and ABA have written in collaboration, but it is pretty basic info and doesn't really "speak" to women who are in the midst of PND and struggling with bf'ing. Saying that bf is a time to bond- when the baby is struggling at the breast constantly and the mother doesn't even want to hold the baby (let alone have it attached to her most of the time) - is not always a very helpful argument. I therefore feel that I need something a little more significant than that to encourage Breastfeeding.
Any feedback much appreciated.

There's something about oxytocin and happy hormones... So a chemical reason it helps, but my brain can't put it more eloquently than that currently, when do you need it by?
Another idea might be to PM Tam-I-am, I'm pretty sure I have read a link once upon a time from her...
I'll take a look through my Uni bookmarks and see what I can find.
And lastly... Bump! For the other clever ladies

Thank you so much for that, ElizaDoLittle, I'll make sure to send Tam-I-Am a message! Unless she notices this thread first, of course!
