Thanks to all the ladies who join in this mission! And just like in breastfeeding moms, current breastfeeding is NOT a requirement to be in the group or involved in the nurse-in!
My name is Dayna and I am a mother of 3 children, a son(9) and twin girls(4). I am passionate about my job as a CLC and WIC breastfeeding peer counselor. I love what I do, nothing gives me more joy than helping other moms achieve their goals for breastfeeding! And nothing peeves me more than those goals being torn apart by bad advice. That is why I started this group and I hope it really catches on, speaks to moms everywhere who may have dealt with this directly or indirectly.
When I had a major medical issue to do with breastfeeding(long story short, breast abscess of some sort but not bacterial. It is still ongoing after multiple rounds of abx and two surgeries), I was told numerous times I should wean, I shouldn't nurse on medications(thank God I was armed with Dr. Hale's book!) and had procedures done that will affect any future breastfeeding I may do tremendously.
I see other moms affected and effected by this all the time in the work I do and here online in the breastfeeding moms group and other groups. I am ready to do something to put this to an end!
