Breastfeeding support from Amwell

Being a nursing mother is one of the most fulfilling parts of becoming a mother. Yes, it can be a little overwhelming but with the right resources it should be smooth sailing. The problem is when you are postpartum the last thing you want is to take your precious little baby out, specially to doctors offices where let’s face it… there’s all kind of germs! If you’re a nursing mother or you’re pregnant you need to know about this awesome service, that allows you to get the help you need in the comfort of your own home. I give you Amwell

Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company. What exactly does that mean? It means you can have access to an array of health care professionals from your own home. All their professionals are board-certified, licensed doctors, and they are ready to help you no matter the time, date or place. You can access Amwell from a desktop, tablet or on your phone. They are here to help, from minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills, to chronic condition management. As a person with a chronic illness, I can’t tell you how important this is too me. Sometimes it takes days to hear back from my doctor for a simple question or a prescription refill. Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are dedicated to keeping you healthy, all from the comfort of your home.

Lactation video consults allow new mothers to ask questions, address concerns, or get advice concerning breastfeeding and everything they might encounter while feeding their newborn. You can see a lactation consultant for common questions and issues associated with breastfeeding. The lactation services are provided by a network of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs). They can provide help on a number of issues such as latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply, pumping or going back to work or school as well as many more.

Why should a new mom use Amwell’s lactation services?
– Lactation consultants are not available at every hospital where moms deliver and some moms don’t deliver at hospitals anymore.
– New mothers have so many questions when it comes to breastfeeding their new babies, however, not every mother is able to see a board-certified lactation consultant to help answer those questions before leaving the hospital.
– Video allows the consultants to assist with latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply or going back work
– Allows new mothers at any stage to get answers to their questions and issues usually within 24 hours of request. Which is a crucial period, since most mastitis and clogged ducts develop within days if untreated.

Amwell’s lactation consultants are incredibly knowledgeable and by video chatting with them you can show them your issues, they can see how your baby is latching, help you with positioning and give you tips all from the comfort of your own home. When I was nursing my son I got mastitis and I didn’t really know what it was until I waited too long and had to be put on antibiotics. Clogged ducts are no joke and to know you can reach someone so fast and without living home is such a wonderful resource. I certainly wish we had this when I was a nursing mom.

The lactation consultants can give you tips and advise to make sure you stay healthy and comfortable. Breastfeeding is such a wonderful part of motherhood, but it can be tricky at the beginning. Let Amwell help you, without leaving home or paying for an expensive appointment. Most insurance cover lactation consultants and Amwell is no exception, they will check for you and make sure you’re covered!

Trying to conceive?

This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork OTC. All opinions are my own.

Becoming a mother is such an extraordinary experience. Although I’ve tried to describe it several times, the best way I’ve found is this: it’s like having one of your vital organs outside of your body, something so elemental, necessary you can not live without, part of your being, outside where you are entirely in charge of it. It’s whole well being depends on you and it’s a duty you are glad to have. 

I’ve experience pretty much all the feelings related to finding out you’re pregnant. From being scared, shocked and in disbelieve when it wasn’t at the best time, to incredible excitement and the second greatest feeling in the world, shy only to holding your baby in your arms for the first time. 

I understand the troubles of trying to conceive, the many many days of taking your temperature, having sex until it quite honestly becomes another shore, to doing head stands after, haha this might sounds crazy for some but if you’ve gone through it you understand. The need to become a mother becomes your one goal in life. 

I tried for 20 months to get pregnant and trust me when I tell you I wish I could’ve had The Stork otc. The Stork otc, allows you to safely in the comfort of your own home, inseminate yourself. I know it sounds a bit weird but bare with me here…

The smart technique of cervical cap insemination puts the sperm at the opening of the cervix, as close as possible, to swim up through to an egg, optimizing your chances of becoming pregnant. This is amazing for couple that were told their partners sperm has low motility or count. 

It is FDA approved and you can get it over the counter, so no unnecessary awkward conversations with anyone. No expensive treatments, painful shots or any inconvenience really. 

The Stork OTC
is best when use in conjunction with an ovulation tracker like the fist response tracker so you know you’re using it at the peak of ovulation. 

The Stork OTC
, is available at most CVS and Walgreens stores, you can go here to find the closest store near you. They are located in the feminine care/sanity aisle. 

Make sure you join me at the Twitter party on January 26 at 8pm EST, you can articipate with hashtag #2017StorkOTCjourney and get all you questions answered.
