My doctor didn't prescribed calcium or iron tabs after 3 month's ..I'm bf and from 2 days I'm feeling bck pain..so can I take calcium without doctors prescription


Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

please consult ur doc n take the calcium.Check ur posture while feeding ur baby.Sit straight with back support and lift ur baby to ur breast, place a pillow to support ur hands.Many mothers bend their back while bf which is the main reason for backache.Try to bend ur knees while reaching floor( not to bend back) ..

its better to take iron and calcium supplements till six months after delivery .better to a prescription from doctor. do light back exercises for back ache u will find some on net.
