Ask your question

  • Only bone I’ve broken was my wrist as a teenager. You raise some very good points though, how does healing go when pregnant and\or breastfeeding



  • My friend broke her tailbone during childbirth she had one of those ring cushions and cool packs wasn’t much else they could do for her.



  • Hi mom, have been thinking about you and wondering how you are going?



  • Your GP/health nurse should also be able to provide you with techniques for breastfeeding if recovering from injury.



  • Hi mom, I am a little confused about which bones …but if you have any I do hope you are healing and coping and under good Dr care. All the best to you.



  • I am not sure how a broken bone impacts on breastfeeding; guess it depends on the bone… in any event seek medical advice.



  • No experience with broken bones during pregnancy – sounds unpleasant – poor you! :( I hope your GP and health professionals are giving you lots of care. :)



  • Drink lots of milk and take calcium tablets



  • oh dear poor thing. Can’t help sorry. A cast will help broken bones and hubby helping lots!



  • It would depend on which bone was broken. I don’t quite understand what would be different to if you broke a bone when not pregnant or breastfeeding?



  • No I didn’t. I’ve had a broken wrist as an 11 year old and broke my little toe when my kids were in primary school. The toe was interesting as it’s too small for a cast or to tape up. I just had to be careful for a few weeks. Made walking to tge bus stop to get the kids to school fun. Had to wear thongs as I couldn’t get shoes on, not so good during winter
