We live in a world where most new parents want to breastfeed, but find they are unable to meet their feeding goals. When breastfeeding and lactation ends before you’re ready, or is a challenging experience this can lead to trauma, grief, guilt, and shame. Typically, these feelings are turned inward and trigger a strong sense of failure and self blame.

In Breastfeeding Grief: Understanding and Recovery we delve into the complexities of breastfeeding difficulties. Looking at a broader picture and providing solace for mothers who feel they failed their breastfeeding goals by reframing the narrative—these challenges are not based on an individual’s failings, but rather reflect broader societal issues.

In reading this book, not only will you come away with answers, but also some practical tools and exercises to help you begin to heal, to empower you on a journey of healing. By addressing feelings of shame, grief, and processing your trauma, you can focus on embracing parenthood without the weight of past experiences holding you back.

Whether you’re seeking answers or searching for ways to heal, Breastfeeding Grief: Understanding and Recovery offers a compassionate and inclusive guide to navigating the complexities of breastfeeding grief and embarking on a journey toward recovery.
