The elation of becoming a new mother is unparalleled.
It is full and unfettered joy. There is the little cocoon you create of blissful perfection. Your new little family, the immense love that fills your heart and home, settling in to a new routine, and getting to know the incredible tiny human you just grew.
I LOVE breastfeeding. So much so, that I have been nursing for 7.5 years straight. Non-stop through 2 pregnancies, and tandem nursed for a period after each second and third child was born. Nursing is an incredible bonding experience and I have been very blessed to have had an easy nursing journey. I also had an abundance of support from the very beginning. I home birthed all 3 children with a midwife and, in every way possible, the care and support was top notch.
