Health Tip: Breast-Feeding Benefits Moms, Too
How it may boost maternal health

(HealthDay News) -- Breast-feeding ensures that baby gets all needed nutrients. It also may offer health benefits for mom, too.

  • Promotes weight loss and helps the uterus return to pre-pregnancy size.
  • Reduces stress.
  • Lowers risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Lowers risk of ovarian and breast cancers.
  • Reduces risk of depression after pregnancy.
  • Lowers risk of developing osteoporosis and iron-deficiency anemia.
