Contrary to popular belief, breastfeeding does not always come naturally to new mothers. There can be several medical complications due to which the mother is not able to lactate naturally. Women who undergo a C-section or opt for IVF methods for pregnancy are most prone to facing issues with latching and lower milk production. These issues with breastfeeding add to the stress that comes with being a mother.
I still remember, as a little girl, playing with dolls, prams, and bottles. As children, many of us had a subliminal inclination towards nurturing and caring for a baby. Role playing this fantasy through our toys, we always made sure our “baby’s” diaper was changed, and they were well fed and contented. As I grew older and matured into a woman, I always dreamed of the day when I would be starting my own little family. Physically re-enacting the very same dream and fantasy I had portrayed in my childhood.
