You hold the puzzle pieces

You are the holder of the puzzle pieces.

I got all emotional last time I taught an introduction to #slings #workshop with @villagemidwife.

Talking about these puzzle pieces, made me well up with emotion, remembering one of the times I #knew I meant for this work.

As I passed around a box of puzzle prices, explained how you as the parent are gathering them all. This was my gift to them to remind them.

At the same time, in my head, I remembered meeting a parent for the second time, who told me I had changed the course of her breastfeeding journey. She said, I am here 6 months on, though all our trauma, because of this idea you gave us. I had forgotten I’d even said it, but the awe of the rippless of parent to parent support caught me in that moment.

Now I share it with you too.

Many supporters and loved ones will offer you support and advice. They offer you pieces of their puzzles, only YOU will know which pieces of puzzle you are offered, actually fit.

Some won’t. That’s ok. But please keep searching until your instincts are quiet again. They are powerful and will lead you. Keep asking new people until all feels well.

In case you need reminding, YOU GOT THIS
