The Relationship Between Maternal Intravenous Fluids and Breast Changes in the Postpartum Period: A Pilot Observational Study
TLDR
Women who received IV fluids during labour had higher levels of edema postpartum and rated their breasts as firmer as and more tender than women who did not receive IV fluids, which support a larger study about the relationships between maternal perinatal IV fluids and breast or nipple changes.

A Study to Find the Prevalence of Breast Engorgement among Lactating Mothers

The study found that the prevalence of breast engorgement among lactating mothers with vaginal delivery, lower segmental caesarean section was 65%-75%. Expand
Treatments for breast engorgement during lactation.
TLDR
The effectiveness and safety of different treatments for engorgement in breastfeeding women are determined and it is uncertain if women breastfeed longer following treatment with cold cabbage leaves than routine care because CIs were wide and included no effect. Expand
Maternal intravenous fluids and postpartum breast changes: a pilot observational study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mothers in this pilot study who received intravenous fluids in labour and postpartum had higher levels of breast edema and rated their breasts as firmer and more tender than women who did not receive intravenous fluid. Expand
Treatments for breast engorgement during lactation.
TLDR
The objective of this update is to seek new information on the best forms of treatment for breast engorgement in lactating women and to assess the quality of the evidence using the GRADE approach. Expand
