What We Did Not Learn In High School
I have been successfully breastfeeding my daughter for almost 52 Weeks now. I enjoy the bond, the way she looks so content, the way her smooth hands has to be touching me at all times. I enjoy the fact that my body has built her body. I want to extend nurse her for what ever time she needs it for.
One night she awoke and as she laid there in my arms so soft and warm, I came to think about how badly I want her remember these moments, just her and I. I want her to remember how content we both were, and how I gave up my sleep for her, without a second thought. Just to be with her.
Then I came to think, we are taught at a young age on our bodies, what happens in puberty, how to create another, but we never learned the natural way to “grow” a baby. Why is that exactly? Why was I never told about this? Why can’t this be brought into the school systems? Maybe not in grade 4, but what about in high school (where some women get pregnant).
I just don’t understand why so much information was left out. I personally would love to go into a class and talk about my nursing experiences with my daughter, I am a proud mother who breastfeeds. I just think there should be more education about it. What do you think?
