“Depression affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It causes mental anguish and impacts on people’s ability to carry out even the simplest everyday tasks, with sometimes devastating consequences for relationships with family and friends and the ability to earn a living.”
Before I even became pregnant, I knew that I wanted to one day breastfeed. My immediate family is extremely small. Unfortunately, breastfeeding was not something any of us was familiar with. I saw, however, through social media how strong of a bond mothers had with their children while breastfeeding. So when my time came, I knew I had to try it. During my pregnancy, I had researched as much as I possibly could about breastfeeding. I spoke with my OB-GYN, and I even went to visit a lactation consultant. I knew the benefits, and also some risks. This is my breastfeeding story for the first 4 months of Jaxon’s life.
When it comes to being a mother, our top priority is raising a healthy child. It is the sole reason why I chose to breastfeed. After seeing the bond my sister and nephew formed, I was sold. I also paid close attention to the health benefits of breastfeeding. All things considered, I was convinced that this was the best choice for my little boy. I found out that nursing your child is not only beneficial for your baby but for your body as well. I can also credit most of my “bounce-back” body to breastfeeding. So, allow me to tell you about my experience in breastfeeding, and then I’ll hit you with the facts.
