Coping with Unmet Breastfeeding Expectations

Coping with Unmet Breastfeeding Expectations

Although you may feel isolated in this experience, such feelings are common—and a common risk factor for postpartum depression. How can you cope with your breastfeeding experience? How can you heal so that you can fully embrace your role as a mother, even if not feeding your baby as you had hoped? Join Marie as she speaks with Swiss lactation consultant, hypnotherapist, and author Hilary Jacobson on steps to resolve breastfeeding grief and overcome feelings of disappointment.
