MEDELA Q&A: A LITTLE INTRODUCTION ABOUT MYSELF & MY PREGNANCY JOURNEY


*****
Pregnancy is truly a beautiful experience and I can definitely say that it has been very surreal and rewarding. I've collaborated with Medela to share with you all of my pregnancy and breastfeeding experiences. Hope you guys enjoy...

Medela Q&A 

Share a few lines introducing yourself
I'm Livia and a new mother to a healthy baby boy. I've had my ups and downs throughout these past 9 months, whether it was morning sickness, tiredness or painful leg cramps...but it's all worth it in the end (I'd do it all over again). Up until the final weeks of pregnancy, I was beginning feel more tired and heavy, but overall pregnancy was definitely a life-changing experience for me. 


Congratulations to you and your partner on the birth of your first baby! How are you feeling? Nervous, excited?
Thank you! I remember feeling very excited and nervous because I was about to meet my little man for the very first time who has been in my womb for the past 9 months. 9 months of being pregnant is definitely a long time and so being able to meet your child for the first time is definitely an exciting experience. As for being nervous, it's more of expecting the unknown, i.e. Am I ready to be a new Mum? How will this affect my current life situation? 


Have you done much research into breastfeeding? Do you have any expectations/hopes?
I've definitely looked into breastfeeding as well as attend the classes being offered at the hospital. From my perspective, breastfeeding gives babies the best start for a healthy life and provides many benefits for the health and wellbeing of mothers and babies. During pregnancy, I hoped to breastfeed as much as I could and so I was exploring the Internet and trying to educate myself as much as I could before I give birth. 


What made you want to use Medela products on your breastfeeding journey?
From research I know that Hospitals use Medela Symphony breast pumps  and other Medela products,  and I've heard great things about the brand from friends and family. I've compared products and brands and I have to say that I'm really impressed with the technology behind the Medela breast pumps. 


Have you received any motherhood/ breastfeeding advice from your friends/ relatives?
I've heard from friends and relatives that breastfeeding can be a challenge, but it's a matter of giving it your best from the very start. I guess my favourite advice has to be, 'Know that newborns nurse ALOT'...
