  Nurturing the Nursing Mother


So often, it’s the new baby who is the center of attention. It’s so easy for everyone—parents and professionals—to focus on nurturing him. And rightly so! But what about the mother? What words, actions, or recommendations will help the mother to feel nurtured at the antepartum, intrapartum, or postpartum period? And, how can we modify these words, actions, or recommendations for the mother who has a baby that is preterm or compromised? Sometimes, it’s good to pause and realize that the words and action that we communicate to the mother can be nurturing—or not. The goal of this program is to help the professional use specific techniques or “sound bites” that will help the mother to feel nurtured whether she has a well or compromised baby.
