Baby can't breastfeed because of social services
by Ann Marie
My baby was taken from me at birth at the hospital because I was 2 hours late to a nonemergency 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 taken off of my breast in the middle of the night by a social worker and put in a plastic tub under bright lights.
