Melanie Raposo: Hi! Everybody I'm Melanie Raposo and welcome to the pregnancy show. On today's show we're going to be introducing to you the first of many mom panel discussions that will be featured on our show. All the moms to for my panel from a great organization based in Ontario called mom to mom and they'll be talking about all the important issues that both pregnant woman and patients constantly faced with. And on today's part of 1 at 2 breastfeeding episodes, the moms talk about the importance to breastfeeding and they get personal and share their own breastfeeding experiences. Let's take a look. Female Speaker: Breastfeed or not to breastfeed. Female Speaker 1: Unfortunately because bottle feeding has been the known for so long we are not surrounded by of the breastfeeding mothers, so it's not something we've seen our mother or grandmothers. So now it will be better for our children because they have seen us breastfeeding hope that it will go on with that. Female Speaker 2: That's true. Female Speaker 1: That will become easier, because you will just ask next to neighbor instead of coming seek how special of support. Female Speaker 3: It's just seems like you know a lot of moms don't talk about it openly, so you feel like you can approach other mothers are say you know talk about breastfeeding in detail and now if you know it's like, some mothers trying to hide it you know weren't they might pump milk in and feed their baby from a bottle outside public and so you don't you can really get a conversation going in all mother in the park friends -- about other topics. Melanie Raposo: Great. Female Speaker 3: But it's hard and nobody tells you that it's at part, Female Speaker 1: Yeah. Female Speaker 3: I mean all for breastfeeding but on day 3 and the milk still hang from in and I wasn't sure if the -- coming in and everyone told me oh, you'll feel this or you'll that. Female Speaker 1: Right. Female Speaker 2: And I didn't feel it, I was for something that's natural why is it? So hard, but why Female Speaker 1: That's what I'm struggling with Female Speaker 2: But by date 5 everything was working and I have to stay I'm glad you know for a week of frustration it was totally and adeptly worth it and I breastfeed mine until she was two and half.
