"Working moms be like 😉
I was photographing my muffins and my little dude decided it was time for a snack:) I have now breast fed 3 kids for a total of 46 months combined. My mom, this group, The Leaky Boob, Kathy Rude my midwife, and Jessica Martin-Weber have been a huge part of that. I made it to nine months with my first before she (what I thought) self weaned but apparently was going through a nursing regression. I found the leaky boob around the time I was pregnant with number 2, made it to 22 months with her when I was pregnant with this guy. My nipples were SUPER sensitive and she didn't want my milk after it changed so we were both ok bidding our nursing journey farewell. My son is now 15 months and we are going strong:) I'm so grateful for the education support and community this group has brought. With ya'll's advice I've made it through early teethers, biting, pinching, mastitis, tongue tie, thrush, nursing strikes, oversupply and forceful letdown, working and everything in between. I've also had the honor of donating over 1,000 oz of milk to other littles and have received donor milk when I was in the hospital at one point. I am now a Doula and am able to help others in their nursing journey.
My son is 16 months old and loves to nurse. I am a Photographer, Birth Doula and Mom. I have been so blessed by amazing women who have come along side me in my Motherhood journey. I feel that when we as women support one another and help them become successful in motherhood it propels and empowers them to be successful in all areas of their lives. It is my life's calling to support women and make them feel loved, empowered and capable. I have had the amazing honor of others doing that for me and it makes me want to pay it forward. Together we are stronger. It doesn't just take a village to raise a child but to raise mothers too. Let's be that village."
