LLLmtg- Becoming a Mother/Early Days with Baby

At the next morning meeting we're going to explore our feelings about the transition to becoming a Mother, and managing those early days and months with baby. This new role can surprise us, rock us to our cores, and bore us silly, all in the space of an hour. It's intense, learning your baby's signals, needs, and routines, not to mention trying to maintain relationships and at least some basic hygiene ;)

How have you found this transition? What has helped you through it? Join us on Tuesday to share these thoughts and others.

And we always make space for any other breastfeeding concerns or questions you may have!

See you Tuesday, April 18 @10am
