The challenging journey of a breastfeeding mother

This was one of the first articles on my blog and in the category of parenting. The beginning of my breastfeeding journey had been full of challenges and giving up would have been an easy and convenient option. But I could never compromise with the health of my baby and thus went on to create some amazing memories and a strong bond with my toddler through the twenty-eight months of breastfeeding journey. I decided to repost this article because it is still as relevant today as it was when I penned it down for the first time in August 2016.

She kept trying epidural anesthesia for seven times through spinal injections though the end result was a delivery involving general anesthesia.

After the delivery, the days were full of nervous excitement as a new mother.
