38 Things Pregnant Women Wish They Knew


“I wish someone told me it was possible my milk wouldn’t come in. I was fully prepared to breast feed and pump. I had some leakage, thought I was good to go, but then I’d pump and get half an ounce….all day.”

“I tried everything. The most I would get from my daily pumping combined was at most half an ounce. Thankfully the lactation consultant set me up with formula ‘until my milk came in’ so my baby was fully fed, but it just never happened. I never went through any of the pre or post breastfeeding symptoms. At the time, I was grateful and I still am, but I also feel weirdly like I missed out on a motherhood experience.”
