A Online Platform Created to Provide Emotional, and Informational Support Exclusively for Breastfeeding Mamas!

Did You Know?

Mamas who worried — from the start — about their ability to nurse their baby were more likely to switch to formula sooner than those who didn't share those same concerns.

Education is KEY!

Educate yourself and others about breastfeeding!

A mothers love is endless. There’s nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for my child and breastfeeding is one of those things. Trina/ Creator of The Lactating Mama

First off becoming a mother was an exciting time in my life, at the same time it was extremely overwhelming. The second go around was no different. However, this this time I had a full plate. I had to figure out how to manage a household, care for a baby, and older child, be a supportive wife, and work. Not to mention doing it all while BREASTFEEDING.

During my journey I often asked myself, "WHERE IS THE SUPPORT?" Shoot, I needed help! Breastfeeding is not easy, especially when it's your first time, and you feel completely clueless. There's so many things the doctors don't tell you. So many things you're left to figure out on your own. Personally, I wanted to hear from other breastfeeding mamas like myself. I wanted to know I wasn't alone on this journey, and I wanted the raw, uncut version of breastfeeding. Yes, I knew my breast would hurt, however, what about the excruciating pain I would be in daily because my baby was not latching correctly? What about when it was time to return to work, and I had to pump my milk, but couldn't pump more than a ounce at a time? Shit, what about when my cycle started at 12 week's PP, and my milk supply decreased? I had so questions, and no one to turn too. I needed to hear how other mamas got through their BF challenges. I not only needed answers, I needed support, I needed inspiration.

There were so many times I wanted to stop breastfeeding all together, but I fought through. I successfully breastfed my daughter for 26 months, and I'm so proud of that. It was hard, but I did it, and you can too. This is why I decided to create this website, and later become Certified as a Lactation Educator and Counselor. I want to help other mamas on their breastfeeding journey. I want to share what I've learned, and experienced along the way. I want to share the good, bad, and the ugly of my journey. I want to be an inspiration! Use my website to guide you. Learn from me. Share with me. Be empowered by my story. You can do this, mama!!
