OBS Breastfeeding Grief and Trauma Support Sessions

We know that for many, breastfeeding did not work out the way they wanted or hoped. Many carry heavy and complicated feelings with them about their breastfeeding experiences. Some describe feeling grief and even trauma. We have a small amount of funding to offer one-off support sessions where you can talk about your breastfeeding experiences.

The session was a "space where I felt held, where I did not feel judge, where it was comforting to see that I was not the only one who struggled (and sometimes still struggles)."
