My body has created a safe and warm environment for 2 healthy babies. My beautiful body continued to provide nourishment for my children after each of them were born. My amazing breasts have provided wonderful milk for over 22 months. I am currently still nursing my 16 month old son, whose main source of nutrition is still through my breastmilk. I have more self esteem now than I ever have due to my success as a mother, my strength as an individual, and my passion for the work I do. As a doula and a lactation counselor, I know many women have issues with self-confidence. Not only with their bodies, but also with their ability to speak up for themselves and advocate for their families. I encourage all women to embrace their beauty. I believe that all women should feel confident and empowered through their birth and breastfeeding experience. I also wish for every woman to know and understand that her powerful body is all the more beautiful for it’s every accomplishment.
