🤱🏻It's National Breastfeeding Week 2019🤱🏾
🌪My breastfeeding journey got off to a very tricky start which I had not expected. Thankfully with the AMAZING support from a breastfeeding counsellor tongue tie practitioner, peer supporters, IBCLCs (not to mention an incredibly hands on husband, wonderful sister & lots of family around) we succeeded!
⏩Fast forward 6.5 years and here I am, 'still' going... having had a much smoother start second time round. I'm still forever grateful to the support I received which inspired me to train as a breastfeeding peer supporter myself, both with Breastfeeding in Harrow and the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers.
💫As with so many things parenting related, it really does take a village...
🎉 I'm looking forward to seeing some of my breastfeeding tribe this weekend at the ABM conference and birthday celebration 🥳
