Podcast: When the "booby fairy" doesn't arrive - insufficient glandular tissue
July 25, 2011
We’re very happy to share a podcast on a particularly heartbreaking breastfeeding issue: insufficient glandular tissue or breast hypoplasia - the incomplete development of the glandular tissue in the breast.
Mothers with hypoplastic breasts often struggle to provide enough milk for their babies, despite ‘doing everything right.’
Tanya Lieberman, IBCLC talked with Diana Cassar-Uhl, IBCLC on the visual markers of hypoplastic breasts, the incidence of it, what to do if you have hypoplastic breasts. We particularly liked her story of helping her best friend, who coined the term “booby fairy.” Diana also discussed the use of Goat’s Rue to build glandular tissue.
