This week Lori talks about meeting Stacy, who was tearful and exhausted when she came in for her consult. She talked about having a good breastfeeding experience with her first baby and yet with her second baby, she was in so much pain. Stacy was not quite sure if she could continue breastfeeding as it was really taking it’s toll on her. Lori shares how she was able to help Stacy understand why breastfeeding her baby was so painful. She was able to help her understand what an immediate care plan would look like while she was working on resolving her breastfeeding issues. While this was certainly far from the most interesting or difficult lactation problems Lori has dealt with, it was one that she remembers quite vividly. It represents what all mothers want – They just want the simplicity of being a mom and being able to breastfeed their baby, in comfort and joy. With all the tools and tricks of the trade and the care plans we give moms, and sometimes it seems to complicated, all she wants is to simply breastfeed her baby.
