When I got pregnant for the first time, I had no idea we could breastfeed. No one in my family that I knew did so and never seen anyone do it. Through my research, like many other parents, I got to know about breastfeeding – which of course made sense and so started educating myself on this subject. But when my little one was born, I never imagined how difficult it will be to latch. With my second I experienced thrush and a baby who wanted to feed all.the. time!! Lastly my third had tongue tie and the pain in feeding was unbearable. We got thrush again – this time worse as it would not heal but kept coming back. – My story
I know what it means. I see you and I have your back mama!
Breastfeeding is natural but it doesn’t come natural for many women!
Breastfeeding should not be painful, but many experience pain due to a bad latch or a tongue tie or some other problems not visible at first glance.
Breastfeeding should be a wonderful experience…until it is not!
I am here to help you reach your breastfeeding goals through hands on support, online support and education.
