A recent client gave me permission to share her story along with some youtube videos she made. Her videos document the process she went through and you can read her story in her own words in the “About” section of each video. To protect their privacy I will call mother Amy and baby Trina (not their real names) in this post. Amy and Trina had a rough start to breastfeeding. Trina was born full-term by emergency cesarean and spent her first week in the NICU receiving IV antibiotics.
Many mothers want or need to express milk for their babies at one time or another. Some mothers need to express their milk if their babies go to theNICU because they are born early, or for some other reason. Many mothers need to express if they are going to work and want to leave breastmilk for their babies.
