Question: Are there any health benefits to breastfeeding for the mother?
What are the benefits of breastfeeding?
Breastfeeding also benefits mothers. The practice when done exclusively is associated with a natural (though not fail-safe) method of birth control (98% of protection in the first 6 months after birth). It reduces risks of breast and ovarian cancer later in life, helps women return to their pre-pregnancy weight faster, and lowers rates of obesity.
