Clinical pearl: A quick fix for vasospasm

with 4 comments

My trick is: when I see a mother with vasospasm after nursing in our outpatient Breastfeeding Medicine Clinic, I will give her heel warmers to put in her bra to relieve the spasm on the trip home. – Sarah Riddle, Ohio

At ABM’s 2010 Intenational Meeting, members from around the world submitted their breastfeeding clinical pearls and mythbusters. We’ll be sharing the Top Ten winners on the blog this week. Clinical pearls reflect the opinions of individual ABM members, not the organization as a whole.

  2. You can also use the hand warmers that hunters use in their gloves and boots.

    (I have no financial interest in this product, just an example!)

    • What are heel-warmers? How do they work? Where do you get them?
