Your Birth, Your Worth Podcast


Jun 5, 2019

Taylor and Darcy are back together today, discussing breastfeeding. They both share some personal stories about their breastfeeding journeys. They discuss the benefits of breastfeeding, pumping, the guilt and shame surrounding the choice to either breastfeed or not. They share tips for breastfeeding as well. It’s important to remember that your personal journey through breastfeeding is uniquely your own and the choices you make surrounding your baby and breastfeeding don’t make you a good or bad parent.

 

Key Takeaway: Your worth isn’t determined by the details of your breastfeeding journey.

 

Highlights:

  • Struggling getting the baby to latch on
  • Getting your partner on board with breastfeeding
  • Breastfeeding is natural, but it has to be learned
  • Pumping
  • The guilt and shame surrounding breastfeeding or choosing not to
  • The benefits of breastfeeding for the baby
  • The benefits of breastfeeding for mom
  • Breastfeeding and pain
  • The magic hour
  • Supply and demand, the more the baby is on the breast, the more milk you will produce
  • Hiring a lactation specialist is worth every penny
  • Using breastfeeding apps
