Medical Illustrations of Breastfeeding
Medical illustrations of breastfeeding have been created for clients for use within health education and they are being used by Birth Centres, Lactation Consultants, Childbirth Educators, Physiotherapists, Obstetricians, Healthcare Workers, Birth Doulas, and Midwives, Websites on Health Education.
These types of illustrations can be used along side photographs and text because they help to provide a visual story in such an immediate and easy way. Its long been recognised that medical illustrations that accompany written text is an excellent way for any expectant mother or a mother with a newborn to understand breastfeeding and the anatomy involved.
Breastfeeding Encouraged by Healthcare Professionals
Breastfeeding is encouraged by healthcare professionals as the best way to feed a baby, as the breast milk contains antibodies that help an infant fight off viruses and bacteria and because it lowers an infant’s risk of having asthma or allergies. For these reasons as well as helping the mother to bond with their baby is why health workers are so keen to gain the mothers trust and this is done through education of the advantages of breastfeeding. The medical images go a long way to helping in this education.
Healthcare workers use medical illustrations like the ones we are showing in our galleries to help teach new parents of the advantages of breastfeeding, as an instructional tool and to demonstrate the anatomy of the process.
Our illustrations of the breastfeeding positions have also been popular to help the new mother get to grips with feeing their infant and the various holding positions. Being able to refer to a helpful visual goes a long way with being able to follow the health-workers instructions. New mothers can be tired so any form of helping tool from a diagram to an illustration will always be helpful.
There are more examples of Joanna’s work regarding illustrations of pregnancy and birth then also examples of previous clients who have used Joanna’s work for the health and educational marketing for a pregnancy app and also of pregnancy anatomical charts.
