Baby can't breastfeed because of social services

by Ann Marie
(Denver, CO)

My baby was taken from me at birth at the hospital, because I was 2 hours late to a non emergency c section. My breasts filled with milk and my little one breastfed happily for a day, before the social workers came and took him away.

It's been so painful to have a foster mom who can't breastfeed have him, and for all my milk to have dried up.

My son suffers from an inability to digest the formula, he's fussy as a result. I wish there were more support out there for moms who have their babies taken away, and more compassion for those babies.

It's been a nightmare for both of us. He was literally taken off of my breast in the middle of the night by a social worker, and put in a plastic tub under bright lights.
