Breastfeeding Support

I have so many of these! In my working professional life I was a midwife, but in my volunteer life I am a breastfeeding supporter and advocate. Getting alongside women and meeting them where they are at gives me such joy. Supporting women to know they can listen to themselves because they have all the wisdom they need right there inside them. I know I am on the right track when women approach me on the street to thank me for the help I gave them 1, 5, 10 or 15 years ago when they were struggling to breastfeed their babies and me just sitting alongside them made a real difference to their mothering and so to their entire lives. Women's spaces are special and so necessary in our lives!
