Meet Melissa Clement
Melissa has exclusively breastfeed for 3 years. Melissa knew she wanted to breastfeed as soon as she was pregnant. So she read a number of breastfeeding books and tried to prepare herself. After her home birth, her son breastfeed right away! They ended up in the hospital 24 hours after the birth for breathing issues where she was able to meet with the lactation consultants. That was the best help she got in her early breastfeeding journey. Melissa's midwife helped her a little more after they were out of the hospital. She started of with short term goals like 6 months and when they meet it she wanted to make a year, then 2 years. Melissa never expected to breastfeed this long but it's been pretty good with only had a few bumps along the way. Exclusively Breastfeeding has been so empowering for Melissa, "I have loved the journey."
