Breastfeeding MOT

What type of breastfeeding best suits your needs?

Breastfeeding support is a specialized area of physiotherapy. It focuses on using manual therapy techniques to help breastfeeding mothers with problems such as positioning and latching, milk production, nipple pain, and milk flow. It can also help with postural/muscle pain and discomfort associated with breastfeeding. In addition to manual therapy techniques, breastfeeding physiotherapy also includes education about positioning, latch, milk production, and other breastfeeding-related topics. A Breastfeeding Physiotherapy MOT is a comprehensive assessment that assesses the breastfeeding mother, her baby, and her breastfeeding technique.


During pregnancy and, above all, at the time of delivery, situations may occur in which the baby’s musculoskeletal system and/or meningeal system are affected, causing dysfunctions at different levels that may influence breastfeeding. This can happen especially in those deliveries in which instrumentalisation is necessary, aggressive manoeuvres such as the kristeller are performed, or physiological rhythms are not respected


On other occasions, there may be problems, such as a restrictive frenulum causing ankyloglossia, which hinder the movement of the tongue and cause the baby not to suck correctly or to compensate for sucking and feeding. Likewise, any pathology of musculoskeletal origin, such as torticollis, which may affect sucking-sucking-swallowing-breathing, may interfere with breastfeeding.
