To raise awareness of mastitis Mum shares photo of red “bloody breast milk”. Which shows what the early signs of mastitis looks like.
Tanya Knox was pumping milk when she saw it was not looking how it was meant to.
Far from its usually creamy white colour, she took note of the fact that the milk had started to turn red. And she spotted a blood clot the size of a 10p coin.
The Aussie mum explained that while passing the clot did not hurt she was shocked by the sight of it.
However, she decided to share the photo to raise awareness of mastitis in the hope of reassuring mothers not to panic if they spot their milk doing the same.
