Birthlight's thoughts on biological nurturing approach to feeding?

Hi,

I've been on the postnatal course recently and we covered the topic of the aligned postnatal sitting position today and while I was reviewing it today, it occurred to me that it sounds like we, in our role as Birthlight teachers, don't promote the biological nurturing or laid-back breastfeeding approach to feeding.  What is the Birthlight standpoint on laid-back breastfeeding? Is it  seen as not as good for realignment postnatally? Or is it seen as equally good because it encourages relaxation of the mother's body? Thanks!
