    If breasfeeding while you're pregnant is something that is important to you and your child, then please seek a second opinion. I know my first born was really psychologically dependent on breastfeeding (and still is) and it would have broke my heart to wean her, as she would have been terribly upset.

    I'd be very wary of a doctor who isn't open to discussing issues with you. I would have thrown a tantrum of my own in his office if it was me... Such advice shouldn't depend on which doctor you see. He should be able to tell you FACTS why you should not breast feed while pregnant - facts that are relevant to your situation and just not something he thinks or feels. Even amongst doctors, there seems to be misconceptions about breastfeeding.

    Sorry to sound preachy - it's just something I feel strongly about - making an informed decision about something so important.

    I used the public system and I had the support of the nurses and doctors I saw during my pregnancy. Sorry, but I do not know any private obgyn doctors.

    Dr Ghosh wasn't anti-breastfeeding when I was pregnant. I only saw him once though when I was about 5-6 weeks. He didn't say anything about me needing to quit or be cautious or anything like that...
