Maybe some sage stories?
What did we do?
Why did we do it?
Whilst I wold love to start a book and similar to Ina May Gaskin’s English project for uni – add it up eventially as a set of tales. .
This is easier and will happen with my adding in pages as I go.
Interspersed will be diagrams and helpful hints. .
And stories from many women who new that this was being a mother – and kept at it.
If this was not your choice, this is offering our motivations – and what allowed us to continue.
A little help you can give yourself – right now . .

Regulating supply – see here
Not being told what they were doing to our bubs – Vit K given without permission. Is it even needed? Typical of bio-medicine – no real understanding of how a well body works – Vit K if needed would be present in cord blood – it is not. The jaundice we find with some babies – if not having to undo a massive hit of chemicals with an immature liver would be helpful – the overload is showing up as the yellowing of the skin.There will be a reason . Evidence based birth
No childcare flexibility – how did I stay same when b/f?
Read novels – 10 from local library – biggest ones I could find.
