When i found out i was pregnant with Rosie i knew that i wanted to Breastfeed. I didn’t really know much about breastfeeding so i signed myself up to my hospital breastfeeding class to gain more of an understanding and to try to prepare as much as possible for our breastfeeding journey ahead.
Fast forward to the day she was born and I remember that first latch she took so well. She knew exactly what she was looking for and latched on with minimal issues. Throughout our hospital stay we had our wonderful midwives taking the time to check the correct latch and guiding us through it but what about when you go home? Who guides you then i remember thinking.
Throughout our breastfeeding journey i used Medela products. Medela provide breastfeeding mums, families and communities with leading breastfeeding products, expert insights, and ongoing research and education to support the breastfeeding journey.
I felt well-informed, guided and supported through using their products and with the information they had available to us mums. Our journey wasn’t always easy but by being supported really helped me overcome any issues we experienced,
Medela showcased a series of artwork produced for Medela by Australian Students depicting what ‘Mother’s Milk Means’ to them. I wanted to share with you my favourite piece from the series.
To me this image represents the unconditional love between mother and child. It shows the close and loving bond between you and your baby and that breastfeeding can be a deeply satisfying experience for both mother and child.
