unable to produce any breast milk

My story is a little different to the others here. I am just plain unable to produce any breast milk at all. I was devastated when I had my first child and discovered this and although I was expecting it I was more devastated when I had my second. It was like my body didn't want me to be a mother, like there was something wrong with me. Why did my body fail to do something natural that all women should be able to do?

My youngest is now 6 months old and I still cry when I think about it. I feel like my body failed me and in turn I have failed my children.

I have searched the internet a number of time to try and find support. This is the first site I have found in 2years. Thank you for creating a place mothers like me can feel at home.
