could not breastfeed.
I had my first child 8 years ago and could not breastfeed. I couldn't even pump more that an ounce.
I have some insight into why now a few years later. I came across an article that examined the effects of polysystic ovarian syndrome and underdeveloped breast sacs.
I suffer from POS and now I am 38 weeks pregnant with my second. I have such anxiety about being in the hospital and the nurses making me feel like a bad mother for giving up the first time after my first child lost a whole pound in 4 days as they refused to let me supplement.
I have to have a c-section with this child and will be in the hospital for 3-4 days.
I am dreading the guilty looks and smart ass comments from the maturity nurses. I wish they would understand that this is not a choice but a need. If any nurse is reading this please don't judge just understand and get off your soap box I don't need you making me feel inadequate.......
