The support a Mother needs: Amwell Lactation Services #MomsLoveAmwell

As a Mom of 6 kids, I have had my share of adventurous births, from a two week overdue 1st child to a 22 week old preemie. I have had many challenges as well as triumphs as a Family of 8

and one of my biggest challenges was always breastfeeding.  As an 18 year old first time Mom, I was completely lost.  I wanted to nurse my baby and be the best Mother I could, but I had no one to turn to for help or support; and by the end of my first week as a Mom I had to quit and turn to formula.

As the four youngest ones came along, they were all born at 30, 28, 24, 22 weeks and with those early births came many challenges. Nursing my kids was the greatest one for me and as much as I tried to get help and support; it just wasn’t there.
We rented breast pumps so I could pump while my babies were in the NICU, but with the stress, pain, and lack of knowledge; I just had no place to turn. I had 3 meetings with the hospital lactation consultant, but she lacked patience and there was no support outside of the hospital. Going online was more confusing than trying to read the breast pump directions, which only came in Chinese for some reason.
Needless to say, I quit trying and resorted to formula feeding my children.

Fast forward to the present, I am glad to see that there is so much support out there for nursing (or attempting to) Women out there; many times the only thing keeping someone from quitting is just receiving a little support.
So when the opportunity came along to work with Amwell to get the word out regarding support for nursing Mothers; I jumped on it.
I remember the feelings I had of being all alone, and I don’t want anyone to feel the way I did.

If only I had this lactation service when I needed it as a younger Mother, I know it would have helped me continue my plan to nurse my children.

Lactation video consults allow new mothers to ask questions, address concerns, or get advice concerning breastfeeding and everything that comes along with feeding their newborn.

See a lactation consultant for common questions and issues associated with breastfeeding. The lactation services are provided by a network of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs). They can provide help on a number of issues such as latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply, pumping or going back to work or school as well as many more.
