Before you had children of your own did any of your family or friends share their own breastfeeding stories with you? What was your impression of breastfeeding? Was it something you always knew you'd do, or was it something you just placed at the back of your mind and decided to think about later?
For me, hearing other women in my family talking about breastfeeding and seeing them breastfeed their babies undoutedly made up my mind for me: I knew from a very early age that if I had children they'd be breastfed. Many women aren't so lucky though and go through pregnancy not knowing anyone who has breastfed or having any family support when they do try to breastfeed.
And it's not just breastfeeding. All over the world there are women desperate to read other womens experiences with pregnancy, birth, infertility and parenting... sooo I wondered if any of you would be willing to share your story on my new forums?
If so, please pop by, register (it only takes a moment) and choose the forum you want to share your story on. It won't just help me but will help other mothers over time as the forum grows.
Thanks so much - I really appreciate any contributions :)
