Morning Checkup: A Study Hoping to Help Mothers with Breastfeeding

Posted: Updated:

It's a therapy to try helping mothers with breastfeeding.

Dr. Dan Morgan, a Graduate Medical Resident at Samaritan Medical Center, stopped by 7 News This Morning Wednesday to talk about how he's conducting research on the effect of Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy on breastmilk supply.

He's currently looking for candidates to be part of the study who are actively pumping. The age requirement is 18 or older.

Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy is a type of adjustment to the muscles, bones, or other tissues that would relieve pressure or kinks that might slow down blood flow and could relieve any pinched nerves such that the body may function the way it's supposed to.

Morgan said the number one reason women quit breastfeeding is they feel they can produce enough milk.
