Today, Desire shares her son’s birth story just a few weeks after the birth, which was a 3-day long hospital induction at Forest Hills Hospital in Queens. She was determined to do it without pain medications and was able to do just that. Also determined to breastfeed, Desire shares the varied experiences she had with hospital staff trying to support her in breastfeeding, and how disempowering language was not helpful. With some perseverance and professional lactation support at home once she and baby were discharged, she details how things improved fairly quickly. Desi explains a few ways that her mother expresses strong opinions, and how Desi has to be confident and do what she believes is best for her baby. She shares about her very unpleasant early first experience trying to change her son’s diaper and breastfeed at a shopping mall, and how she identified a store that was a much better environment for young families. Finally, she’ll provide some smart insights on speaking up when you need help and regularly checking in to be sure your partner is doing okay in early parenthood.
