Milk donor

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

I am a breastmilk donor. I am proud of it. It is an honor to help another woman feed her child. Before people get all 'eww ick, it is a bodily fluid' well so is cows milk...except this is made for people.

I firmly believe that breast milk is best for babies. Also, we have been on the other side, when it is less than easy to produce the amount needed. Thankfully I have been blessed with enough milk for a small country this time.

Part of it is, I wish that birth and mothering was a more supportive thing. There is so much judgment. I wish it were the way that I have read about with women supporting women helping each other through something that only another woman can understand.
