A recent study incorporated a clinic of midwives and chiropractors to care for suboptimal feeding through a multidisciplinary approach. Suboptimal breastfeeding is a recognized problem among mothers and health care professionals worldwide. The aim was to assess the impact of care and education on breastfeeding and maternal satisfaction after attending the multidisciplinary clinic. On follow-up, 93% of mothers reported an improvement in feeding as well as satisfaction with the care provided. Prior to treatment, 26% of the infants were exclusively breastfed. At the follow-up survey, 86% of mothers reported exclusive breastfeeding. The relative risk ratio for exclusive breastfeeding after attending the multidisciplinary clinic was 3.6  The results from this study demonstrate high maternal satisfaction and improved breastfeeding rates associated with attending the chiropractic and midwifery clinic.
