My Exhausting, Yet Empowering Breastfeeding Journey


A beautiful, exhausting, empowering, overwhelming experience.

Breastfeeding is a full-time job and extreme sport. And I say this as a former collegiate athlete.

So let's start at the beginning

I decided that I was going to breastfeed halfway through my pregnancy for two very simple but naive reasons. First, my sister did it and second, it was "free."

Reflecting on my journey, I could see how naive and uninformed I was about breastfeeding. Which in all fairness is not uncommon in the black community.
