Better luck 2nd and 3rd time around

My story is similar. With my first child, Abbie, I did everything wrong. It was lack of information, and a midwife who didn't care, and prescribed birth control pills not telling me they would destroy my milk supply.

I too felt inadequate as a woman and a mother. It should be natural to feed your child, but it wasn't.

Abbie was a c-section birth. We just never seemed to be able to get it right. My second child, Sarah, was also a c-section birth, but everything flowed much better with her. She latched on immediately and for 5 months we did beautifully. My third child, Jesse, was also born c section, and he is also nursing successfully.

I just did so many things wrong with Abbie, like not asking for help, and not listening to the help that was offered, and not listening to my own intuition.
