    Default Breastfeeding, the ICU, Support and Facebook

    Sometimes I am asked why people share breastfeeding photos on Facebook and other social media settings. This is why. It’s celebrating our personal triumphs- whatever they may be; sharing a special moment, encouraging the global community of mothers by normalizing breastfeeding, inspiring others, and giving support. Thousands of people have been inspired and encouraged by one photo with a simple caption. Our stories make a difference and if a picture is worth a thousand words then sharing breastfeeding photos is like breastfeeding support spreading exponentially around the world. In the global community we’ve moved on to via the internet, sharing our photos and stories online can often be the start of support for someone. Just ask Serena, you never know how one image can make a difference.


    This is one of those truly amazing stories. And i'm sure most of you have already seen it on facebook. But i have to share for the women who haven't seen it yet Absolutely heartwarming.

    What a beautiful and heartwarming story. All hospitals should be sent that story for their tearooms!

    I have to admit I'm very curious to know what happened. Only thing I can think of was an adverse reaction or botched epi??

    just off the top of my head i can think of at least 6 different scenario's in which a woman could end up paralysed (temporarily or permanently) from birth. poor woman though what a way to have to parent hey? and the rest of us think doing it with no added disabilities is hard (which it is! but obviously without an extra hindrance).
