Breastfeeding refers to the act of providing breast milk as the primary source of nutrition and nourishment to an infant directly from the mother’s breast. This natural process involves the baby latching onto the mother’s nipple and suckling, allowing the baby to receive essential nutrients, antibodies, and immune factors present in breast milk.
Cesarean birth, also known as a C-section, is a surgical delivery method where the baby is delivered through an incision made in the mother’s abdomen and uterus. This procedure is performed when vaginal delivery is unsafe or not feasible for the mother or the baby, either due to specific medical conditions or during labor complications.
Contraceptives, also known as birth control methods, are a class of medical interventions or devices used to prevent or decrease the likelihood of pregnancy. These methods work by interfering with the process of conception, either by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation), blocking the fertilization of an egg by sperm, or creating a hostile environment for the implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterus.
