Abstract

Despite the fact that exclusive breastfeeding is the gold standard for feeding babies through 6 months of age, there is a notable paucity of information regarding the effect of various chronic maternal illnesses on lactation. With increasingly effective obstetrical and subspecialty management of pregnancy in these women, a growing number of questions about breastfeeding in the context of chronic maternal illnesses will be asked. Here we describe a case of successful exclusive breastfeeding by a woman with long-standing membranous glomerulonephritis.
