Ok, so I'm a newer nurse on an L&D/PP floor. I've had a number of encounters where patients have asked for help with breastfeeding. I am fairly knowledgeable about it and can usually successfully talk them through it.
However, there are sometimes when the women need more of a "hands on" approach and I'm not sure how to go about it. I usually grab one of the other nurses. I don't have a problem touching their breast to demonstrate (its just a breast), I'm just not sure how to go about it. It feels weird saying "is it ok to touch your breast," especially with the husband right there. Any suggestions/tips?
