Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as breastfeeding — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

Possible responses:→ Don't know
→ Yes, but unable to produce enough milk for 1 child
→ Yes, successfully nursing 1 child
→ Yes, successfully nursing 2 or more children
