Come hang with me today 🙌 #carriagehousebirth

A few days after giving birth to my son, I was hospitalized for 10 days for a severe #Cdifficle infection. I was put in an isolation room where only my family could see me. I pumped my breast - only one was working - and sent milk home. I was very lucky to have had solid time with my son before the infection took hold. His latch was strong, and I had a good supply. I’d received acupuncture a few days postpartum because I was turning green and had a fever that was climbing. The acupuncturist said that I could’ve died in the night with an infection that severe. I know it was the fear and separation from my child so early on in his life that catapulted us into the feeding journey we ended up having. So in hindsight #cdiff was an incredible gift! As a doula, I’ve witnessed parents give up on their breast (chest) feeding journeys because it was more triggering and more challenging than even the birth itself - the pressure women feel to feed with their own milk in our society can be immense. I've seen people power through with all that they had to make it happen. I’ve witnessed real strength and courage in a person that said “you know what, this just isn’t for me. I’m no less of a parent, I just know myself.” I’ve seen incredible parents whose milk did not come in make the decision to get milk from a milk bank and be ultimately OVERCOME with gratitude. If you got to feed from your body, someone else’s, or formula feed you’re child, you have won! That bond you form from simply spending the TIME with that child is ENOUGH! I was blessed to be able to breastfeed my son for over four years. But if I had not ENJOYED it, and instead felt too charged, challenged and overwhelmed by the process, then it wouldn’t have had the impact it did on our relationship. It would’ve left a negative and confusing imprint on him, no matter how well nourished he was. I believe this with all that I am. #love
