Cara's Story

I assumed breastfeeding would be natural and easy. I learned that’s not always the case. Nursing my first son was very painful, and I cried each time I nursed him.  If my sister hadn’t noticed him chomping down to nurse, I wouldn’t have known to seek help. After he received Craniosacral Therapy, I was able to continue nursing him exclusively until he was 5 months old. Due to untreated postpartum anxiety and depression, my supply didn’t last and I supplemented with donor milk and formula until he was a year old.

With that experience, I knew to get the same treatment for my daughter and youngest son. They both needed a lip and tongue release along with Craniosacral Therapy. I was able to nurse my daughter until she was 1, when she self-weaned. I’m currently nursing my 3-month-old son. Although nursing didn’t start the way I thought it would, I’m grateful for all I have learned along the way and to know that nursing can be a great experience. I’m thankful for the help I’ve received to help me and my babies nurse successfully without pain.
