mastitis before baby is born

I got mastitis in one side three days before my daughter was born and was never able to nurse. My milk never came in but I wasn't impressed with the LC the hosptial provided. Has anyone else gotten mastitis before giving birth I'm worried it will happen again as I'm 16 week pregnant now. Any tips on avoiding it again.

Re: mastitis before baby is born

I am adopting and self-induced nursing to get my supply in before baby girl is born. I got Mastitis right when my milk came in. The nursing consultant told me to get Lecithin, it helps break down fat and clear the milk duct. Also Oregon grape helps with the bacteria that causes Mastitis.
With both kids I got Mastitis so often. It is miserable.
Good luck
