Meet Gemma and her mum Angela.
“Mum’s always been there to help & support me”
My mum gave me support during the long cluster feeds by making sure I had food and drinks and also providing me with company when the evenings felt really long on my own while feeding for hours. She also helped me with my first public feed which I was really nervous about she helped me with positioning and holding anything I needed her to hold. She was always at the end of the phone to give me encouragement at the beginning when I was struggling either just to listen to me or to give me some encouragement and remember how far I had come in my journey.
As I breast fed my children I knew how to support my daughter emotionally and to give her confidence to feed in public. It meant a lot to be to be able to give her the support that she needed.
