While many mothers expect to have their breastfeed their newborn babies, many expect that it will simply come naturally to them after birth. Some, like Remi, learn the hard way that it’s neither easy nor does it come naturally.
Remi wishes that she was taught more about the risks, complications, and options for feeding so she could’ve avoided her painful journey. Instead, she shares her story in the hopes of being the one to teach other new mothers.
