It’s the Birth Silly!

“Mothers in our culture haven’t given birth since the early part of the 20th century.  And no mammal who has birth taken from her goes on to nurse easily, or even to mother easily.  It’s not the breastfeeding that’s the problem.  It’s the birth!”

    Great Article!!! I’ve often felt that it IS the birth that causes the trouble with breastfeeding. I’ve even heard all that routine suctioning screws things up for the babe.

    This was a fabulous read!
