Breast Feeding

Woolwich shield



Could I use this shield (Woolwich shield) if I`m not pregnant or breastfeeding? Is there a chance that it could cause breast problems later in life. I`ve always had this problem and very self-conscious about it. I`m in my mid-forties. Help!!!!


I am only familar with the use of Woolwich shields during pregnancy and lactation.
