I Am Strong {Breastfeeding in a Modern World}

by Birth Without Fear on May 7, 2014

I am strong because at 39 weeks and 1 day my son, Brendon was born.

I am strong because I endured 24 hours of labor, and only dilated to 5cm and he still hasn’t dropped into the birthing canal.

I am strong because after knowing I refused to have a cesarean section, my doctor told me it was the only option.

I am strong because while in the operating room, we found out my son’s umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck.

I am strong because we heard his cry even before he was taken out of my body.

I am strong because I am still exclusively breastfeeding, despite how difficult the world makes it.

I am strong
