Breastfeeding Grief – Hope for Healing
Breastfeeding challenges can lead mothers to feel overwhelmed by emotions such as sadness, anger, self-blame, regret, anxiety, and loss of confidence. These difficult, entangled emotions are not at all unusual, yet mothers often feel alone, as though they are the only ones feeling this way.
Breastfeeding challenges double a mother’s risk of postpartum depression. Suffering mothers deserve to receive understanding, compassion, and also therapy when needed, but at present, very little appropriate support is available.
Hilary Jacobson is an ACHE certified clinical hypnotherapist, the author of “Mother Food,” and a specialist for low milk supply. The approach she offers has helped many mothers recover their confidence and joy.
The book Healing Breastfeeding Grief is available on amazon.com both as a printed book and kindle.
