Both knowledge about the advantages and benefits of breastfeeding, how to overcome the obstacles faced during breastfeeding, as well as the correct breastfeeding technique. This case study describes the application of the “BREAST” education package to Mrs. A. 6 hours postpartum with complaints of lack of milk production. One of the midwifery care for breastfeeding mothers is to implement the "BREAST" education package which stands for B = body position, R = response, E = emotion, A = anatomy, S = suckling and T = time.
