Trauma and Breastfeeding

I was recently asked to write a guest blog for Motherlove, on the topic of childhood sexual abuse and breastfeeding.  I was honored to be asked, and more than happy to comply.

When I was completing my bachelors degree, I chose the topic of Trauma and Breastfeeding as the focus of my capstone project.  In my project, various forms of trauma were discussed, including sexual abuse and how breastfeeding can be impacted by previous abuse.

Motherhood published my blog a couple of weeks ago, and I am sharing it here with all of you.
