How a second time mom was able to successfully breastfeed after exclusively pumping for her first baby
In this interview, Chelsea Kerley chats with Melody Walker, a mom located in the USA who had exclusively expressed for her first baby for 11 months!
Melody is a second time mum who struggled to breastfeed her first baby after following advice from a lactation consultant. She turned to exclusively pumping, which she continued for 11 months. (Amazing!)
She wanted to be better educated and more prepared this time around with her daughter (Evelyn). After joining the Thompson Method program, Melody grew in confidence and she is enjoying breastfeeding successfully and is an active, supportive member of the Breastfeeding Club.
In this video, Melody talks about:
- 17s > previous struggles (with poor advice)
- 3.20 > preparing during pregnancy
- 6.20 > evidence based approach
- 8.44 > overcoming her challenges
