A New Mother’s Story
Rachel represents the experience of many new mothers, read on and see if her story speaks to you or a new mother you know.
Rachel was at her wit’s end when she came to us for help breastfeeding her son Ben. It was so easy and natural with her daughter; she just couldn’t understand why she was having such a problem with her second child. Truth be told, Rachel was starting to blame herself for being to tense, she was sobbing when it came time to pump her milk for later, and she was afraid that she was just too old to produce milk properly.
After a full examination, Rachel sat and talked with one of our consultants who taught her techniques that made all the difference for Ben, and just as importantly gave her new confidence. She also learned that breast pumps had come a long way and the type she was using wasn’t very effective and made everything more stressful. Our consultant recommended renting a pump with a much better design and it made a huge difference for Rachel and Ben. Now Rachel has peace of mind, knows that she can call for support, and is ready to take advantage of new experiences with Ben because she trusts that her body will provide.
