Mothers who breastfed their babies for more than two months after delivery via Caesarean section were three times less likely to experience persistent pain, researchers found.

Chronic pain after C-section delivery, lasting for more than three months, affects around one in five mothers. Though it is widely accepted that breast milk is the most important and appropriate nutrition in early life, little was known about the effect of breastfeeding on a mother’s chronic pain after C-section.

The findings showed that around one in four (23 per cent) of the mothers who breastfed for two months or less still experienced chronic pain in the surgical site four months post their operation compared to just eight per cent of those who breastfed for two months or longer.

CS rate has increased to > 40 \% in recent times. Although mortality is very rare morbidity is still there. Chronic pain is one of them. It is interesting that prolonged breastfeeding decreases it. This will promote breastfeeding which is very much required in modern times.
