BFAR - Breastfeeding After Reduction
This website was created by Diana West, IBCLC, and Carol Maranta, in 1998 as an outgrowth of the work of the BFAR email lists (operating since 1996) and the BFAR Book (published in 2001).
The purpose of the BFAR website is to provide information and support to mothers who wish to breastfeed after breast reduction surgery and to provide information to health care providers about the feasibility and protocols of breastfeeding after breast reduction surgery. In addition to its outreach to BFAR mothers through the this website and the BFAR email lists, Diana West Lactation Services exhibits BFAR information at professional conferences and publishes information about BFAR in professional journals and parenting magazines. These efforts are funded from sales of merchandise on this website.
The information on this site is not intended to be medical advice. Mothers are urged to consult their health care professionals when health care decisions must be made.
