Breastfeeding is beautiful
I finished breastfeeding my babies last year, my little ones were 5 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old. I am so lucky to have found support with the Australian Breastfeeding Association, which normalised the experience for me. I have made some wonderful friends, that I am sure will be my support through parenting and well after.
I am now a breastfeeding counsellor and I pledge to continue to share this wonderful support to all the mums I encounter. I will always discuss breastfeeding and the support mums require with community leaders and health professionals, encouraging them to be a little more informed, and know how to find support for the mums that they encounter.
I will always sneak a smile of encouragement and support to mums who I notice breastfeeding in public, because they are the ones doing the ground work for the mums of the future, and besides breastfeeding is beautiful in every way.
