When breastfeeding doesn’t go as planned

Breastfeeding is not always easy, and for some women it can be downright difficult. Even with excellent support and specialized assistance, your breastfeeding experience might not live up to your expectations. Some women cope well with these difficulties, while others feel sad and frustrated or even guilty because they cannot achieve the goals they set for themselves. Successful breastfeeding depends on a number of factors that you can’t always control.

It’s good to be able to talk about it with someone you trust and who will lend an ear. Every birth and breastfeeding story is unique.
