Problems With Use

  • Problems with breastfeeding or LAM affect women’s satisfaction and use of the method. If the client reports any problems, listen to her concerns, give her advice and support, and, if appropriate, treat. Make sure she understands the advice and agrees.
  • Offer to help the client choose another method—now, if she wishes, or if problems cannot be overcome.
  • For problems with breastfeeding, see Chapter 24 – Maternal and Newborn Health, Managing Breastfeeding Problems.
