Moms with Poland's Syndrome?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have mild (undiagnosed) Poland's Syndrome affecting my left breast only; no arm/bone/muscle involvement. I'm going on 7 weeks pregnant with my first and would love to breast feed when the time comes. However, I've never heard of anyone doing so and would like to get some more stories from anyone with experience. I tried searching the forums but a search for PS didn't turn up any results.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. For those not familiar with PS, as even many doctors aren't, it is a congenital conditional believed to be caused by an interuption in blood flow during the 6th week in utero, with the most severe cases resutling in stunted limb growth, finger webbing, missing/deformed ribs and or muscles on the affected side, and at the most mild, a failure of the breast on the affected side to develope at puberty. It is most common in males and on the right side (if you remember Radar from M*A*S*H* in the 70's, his left hand was affected).
