Abstract:

This article describes one mother's selected childbirth and breastfeeding experiences that transpired over the span of three decades. Her story is a source of inspiration and encouragement for breastfeeding mothers and health-care professionals who provide maternity care for today's childbearing women. Furthermore, this personal account reveals that, although breastfeeding support and childbirth services have improved over the past 30 years, more needs to be done to promote positive birth experiences and breastfeeding outcomes.
