Name and Role – Jess, host

Location – North Norfolk

Length of time breastfeeding – In all I’ve been breastfeeding on and off for 9 years

Favourite thing about breastfeeding – I love the Bonding, the feeling of closeness, being able to soothe and console, the power that comes from within from knowing what I can truly achieve, the new friends that I have found through breastfeeding support and of course seeing my children thrive.

Bio – Hi my name is Jess I have three daughters age 9,6 and 3 and a one year old son. I have breastfed all of my children but this hasn’t always been an easy ride ,my first seemed hungry all the time and I suffered very sore and chapped nipples due to her teething extremely early without breastfeeding support groups I really feel I would have given up, it was amazing to be around other women who were experiencing the same and speaking to other mums that had been there helped so much! With my third I experienced anti natal depression and again found the breastfeeding support groups amazing and of course the support of the perinatal team were amazing! My son suffered with tongue tie which I had never experienced before and talking to other mums I really supported as it was a worrying time with little one not gaining weight as quickly as expected. I decided to join Breast feeding mum meets as I knew the importance of the existence of these groups through all my breastfeeding journeys and I really wanted to support other mums. Every breastfeeding journey is different, and we are all still learning every day. Nobody knows what to expect and I fully support making it a norm to feed in public. I have experienced a lot of difficulties, but the rewards are so amazing!
