A few weeks ago myself and my lovely assistant Temeaka from Meaks Made It made the drive to Shepparton for another one of our Group Breastfeeding Sessions.
These sessions have been a wonderful way for breastfeeding mothers to capture their feeding journey in a relaxed and fun environment, not only do they get to bond with other local feeding mothers but the sessions also made it really affordable to get some amazing professional images to capture their wonderful journey of breastfeeding.
After not being able to feed my first baby past 6 months due to poor knowledge and advice from so many health professionals I have been over joyed to find knowledge and support to successfully breastfeed my second baby so far we are at 11 months but I hope to continue until she want's to stop, hopefully that's well into toddlerhood!
My own passion for seeing people succeed comes comes from my own sense of failure that was put on me by health professionals and then on myself. Which I now know is in-fact not my failure but a failure of the health care in this country for breastfeeding mothers!
If you or some one you know is experiencing troubles breastfeeding I encourage to step out of your local health care system. Stop going to GP's who aren't supportive of breastfeeding, stop listening to the LC at your local hospital who tells you ties don't affect feeding, don't listen to the Paed who tells you your breast milk is what is making your child sick, Go and seek the advice of a qualified IBCLC! Go and see a expert on ties not your gp!
I recommend the following IBCLC's for amazing breastfeeding advice and knowledge on all things breastfeeding related and baby related!
Tamika Newman IBCLC - Visit her Website HERE or follow her amazing advice on facebook HERE
Meg Nagle IBCLC - Visit her Website HERE or follow her advice on facebook HERE
Anyway - Back to beautiful photo's of breastfeeding mothers!
