How can I increase my chances of breastfeeding after a c-section?

Inform Your Support Person

It is important to discuss your desire to breastfeed with your partner or support person so that they can notify your health care providers if you are unable to do so. An epidural is usually used for C-sections but occasionally, it is necessary to use a general anaesthetic and you may be too groggy or overwhelmed to make your wishes clear.
