As we kick off this year’s World Breastfeeding Week I’d love to introduce you to Brooke. She is the founder of Bouncing Back from Birth. Her divine hand-crafted product range was born from a lack of products available to post partum mums. I have so much admiration for this woman as she’s a kick arse advocate for keeping the conversation OPEN about what happens to our bodies after childbirth. While giving mums the freedom to feel empowered in their own motherhood journey.
Her motherhood journey takes us to a Bayside Melbourne suburb. The highs and lows of becoming a mum can feel overwhelming at times. Breastfeeding is not easy, and a huge deal!! I know I struggled, and getting to 6 months was a massive effort on my behalf. When Brooke’s second bubba was born she wanted her breastfeeding journey celebrated.
Brooke (like me) wasn’t able to breastfeed her firstborn son for very long, however she’s been feeding her daughter for 18 months and counting. So she felt this milestone needed to be documented.
The open dialogue between Brooke and Lola was so beautiful to witness. Now that Lola is older she loves the way her baby communicates with her while she’s feeding. It’s a first for her. I adored the way Brooke is so present with her kids and sensitive to their needs and bloody owning it too. Even her hairy legs didn’t deter her from having her session.
If you’re having a baby or know someone who is, please check out Bouncing Back From Birth for luscious products to help your recovery and make you feel amazing.
