Today I wanted to share a story of a mom that I worked with recently. She had a traumatic birth and did not breastfeed her baby immediately. She was told that he could not wait, needed to have some nourishment as they were concerned about his blood sugar levels. She had no problem agreeing to give him formula. Here is where I am going to pick up her story and I think it is an important one and you will find out why as we go along.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of providing a home visit for a mom who lives in a suburb of Phoenix. I will call her Samantha and tell you that she is 36 year old woman who had her first baby boy after suffering through 3 miscarriages. Her Husband, Andy met me at the door and had a water bottle in his hand saying to me that I must be thirsty! I really appreciated his thoughtfulness as the Phoenix temperatures have been hovering between 111 and 114 for the past few days. I usually bring plenty of water with me, but I was running low, so thanked Andy and came on in.
