    The Mrs. Is on a medical DNC and its causing her incredible amounts of cramping and pain and soreness. The pain is being semi controlled by other meds she was already taking, although they don't seem to do squat. But she is constantly complaining about sore nipples and breasts. Mostly the nips though. I have massaged them, kissed them, sucked them. It all works to a certain degree but is there anything else I am missing that could help her? Especially while she is at the office? Any help would be greatly appreciated by both me and my wife. Thanks again in advance.

    no idea!

    i know that when i had sore nips from breast feeding,
    my midwife said to keep cabbage leaves in the fridge.
    pop them, cold, in your bra and it soothes them a lot.

    no idea if it works for other pain though...

    Hmmm that's an interesting idea. I wonder if that would apply to all leafy veggies. Or maybe I could make her a quick on the go bra/nip pad...

    Oh one thing I noticed, you said midwife. This is an uncommon thing in the US. My wife has been thinking about having one for her pregnancy once it happens. She is fearful of hospitals and doctors who are trained to be surgeons...meaning they tend to want to cut first ask questions later. Would you recommend having one? What should we look for?

    in the uk midwives are the norm.
    there were no doctors involved.
    i had my 10 pound 12 ounce baby, without drugs, without cuts, the natural way, in an nhs hospital. doctors were only a shout away.
    i see no need to turn childbirth into a medical procedure unless something is going wrong.
    midwives did most of my pregnancy care, my entire labour, and two weeks of post-birth care and advice too. they came to my home when i was in my third trimester, which saved me travelling to the medical centre.

    it works well in the uk.
    i've no idea how it would work there though.

    i think cabbage leaves have some particular soothing qualities.
    once the milk comes in, rubbing the milk into the nipple helps a lot.
