Are you aged between 50-74? Are you up to date with your breast cancer screening? 📣

If the answer is no to the above then it’s time to get screening.

According to the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare, only half of women in the target age group are taking up their two yearly free mammograms to test for breast cancer.

Breast screening is important for the early detection of breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is detected the sooner it can be treated with more favourable outcomes. Breast screening also helps to provide women with reassurance following a normal result.

Breast screening is performed using a machine called a mammogram that pushes pressure onto the breasts whilst images are taken. This usually lasts for 10 seconds at a time.

These images are then analysed by a specialist doctor and the results are sent to yourself and your GP. You will then be put on a register to remind you to return every 2 years until the age of 74.

Some symptoms that you should report to your doctor include, changes in the skin, noticing a lump, pain or nipple discharge. If you are concerned about any of the above or are just unsure of how to examine your own breasts please pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Mums are Superheroes! 👏

This week marks World Breastfeeding Week🤱

Breast milk is often considered to be the baby’s first vaccine as it’s rich in nutrients that help to fight infections such as pneumonia and help development of the gut.

It is important that if you are breastfeeding that you look after yourself as you’ll need a good amount of energy to keep up your supply. This includes having a good healthy balanced diet with sufficient iron and vitamins that can be found naturally in fruit, vegetables and meat.

Sometimes breastfeeding doesn’t always work out and don’t fear if that’s you. There are alternatives such as donor milk or formula. There different types of formula on the market - Cow’s milk based, formula with added probiotics, gold, thickened and hypoallergenic formula.

Cow’s milk formula is suitable for most babies and it is similar to breast milk, however it is always important to check with your doctor or pharmacist before using.

But of course if you are able to, it is recommended to breastfeed exclusively for the first 6 months of life, you can supplement breast milk with solids for up to 2 years as wished.

If you have any questions or concerns about breastfeeding please pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy x
