Biomechanical Techniques for Preventing and Treating Engorgement
Breastfeeding biomechanics is a field that combines physics with knowledge from biological and medical sciences, psychology and cultural studies. A better understanding of the nursing mechanics will help us to recognize which cultural concepts of feeding posture may be associated with ergonomic risk factors for the parent's body. Breast engorgement and nipple pain should not be taken as an inevitable part of the early postpartum period. With the help of the «Mindful latching» method (techniques for concentrating parents on their own sensations of postures and movements) we can control the ergonomic risks of repetitive movements. If we still have to deal with engorgement, «3D Inertial hand expression» method (the synthesis of traditional practices and modern knowledge of breast biomechanics) could be helpful. Breast biomechanics focus on how forces act on the breast structures and fluids and how the breast tissues respond to these forces.
