Stacey so desperately wanted to breastfeed her new born Rex. She wanted to feel the skin to skin relationship and the wholesome bond of nourishing her baby with her milk. But Stacey discovered that something wasn't quite right. And as time went by, breastfeeding became harder and more painful.
Her milk flow became interrupted, her breasts became engorged and felt like they were on fire.
Stacey felt terrible when she decided to stop her attempts to feed, and has always blamed herself.
But in this episode, with Kerry from La Leche League, who's volunteers help mothers like Stacey with breastfeeding difficulties, we discover that things may not be as they seem.
What if there was a perfectly reasonable explanation for what went wrong?
Imagine the relief Stacey would feel.
