world breastfeeding week
No doubt you would have seen plenty of images floating around the interwebs for the past six days, from proud mothers sharing their experience and memories of nurturing their child/ren at their breast, in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week.
I was blessed to nurture all three of my children with my own body. It wasn't all smooth sailing, but mostly it was. It was a beautiful time in my life, to be the lifeline for my children. To be SO needed. Feel so important. So connected.
So I'm raising my cup of tea in support, appreciation and pride, in myself and for all those mothers across the globe, who were able to breastfeed their smalls - whether it was a week, a month, six months, two years.. cheers to you and me!
