Many women desire natural birth control during breastfeeding. Concerns over insufficient milk production, fear of potential side-effects of hormonal birth control, and lack of desire for an IUD or other implants are motivating women to look into natural alternatives. From childbirth all the way through breastfeeding, fertility awareness methods can help you naturally and effectively avoid pregnancy.
