Bonding With Your Baby Through Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding has to be one of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced and has created the most amazing bond between me and my little girl. As I hold her in my arms and look into her eyes, she reaches her little hand up to touch my face and in that moment everything in the world seems perfect.
How wonderful is it to know that your body has the ability to create life, give life and nourish life. It was an emotional journey, but such a rewarding one as my little girl and I got to know each other a little bit more through every feed.
The toughest things in life often have the greatest rewards, so be patient and keep trying. It will all be worth it in the end. Breastfeeding is one of the most beautiful ways of expressing your love to your baby.

Happy International Women's Day to all of you! What better way to celebrate today than to highlight two amazing and VERY inspiring #MiteraMamas who both ran for public office shortly giving birth and continue to #pressforprogress? These women have achieved tremendous success in both their personal and professional lives.
