I have been educating about and attending labor and deliveries for 15 years, first as a doula and now as a registered nurse. I firmly believe that women should give birth in whatever way makes it a great experience for them. I have 3 of my own children, my first was a cesarean section and my next 2 were VBACs. I breastfed all 3 because I am lazy and didn’t want to make bottles or wash them. I am passionate about education and making sure women understand all options available to them.
Doctors, nurses, lactation consultants, the media and your Mom is more than willing to tell you all the reasons why you should breastfeed your baby. Breastfeeding has lots of benefits for you and your new baby, if that is what you decide to do.
