I loved spending the morning with these awesome women at Le Leche League Singapore!
I shared about birth interventions and how they can affect breastfeeding and how/which support is accessible when those interventions are necessary.
The meeting started with introductions where everyone gave one word that best described breastfeeding for them. The overwhelming majority were: love, connection, bonding, magic, a challenge. It reminded of the list I collect from always asking women one word that best describes their birth. Lately I’ve gotten: a challenge (that I overcame!), empowering, embodiment, amazing, wonderful, and powerful (feeling the power of the body).
Interestingly and contrary to popular belief, ‘painful’ is not one I come across very often.
Women coming together to support each other on the journey always feels like a whole lot of magic!
