In this BONUS episode, I’m sharing the before, during, and after of breastfeeding my first baby. The story begins 7 years ago when I was in a completely different profession than I am today. I thought I was prepared, but looking back I know I wasn’t. I had challenges along the way and overcame them, which ultimately led to what you see today! There may be parts of my story that resonate with your own, and there may be parts that are very different. But I truly believe it is important to share our stories so we can stop living them and heal. Also–stay tuned for an upcoming episode where I share the journey of breastfeeding my second baby. It’s entirely different!!
