Of course, you can always breastfeed after a C- Section and t is not true that your milk will come in any less. I myself am a survivor of having a C- Section. Many Doctors and Nurses WILL try to push you into pumping when it is not recommended until 4-6 weeks after your milk has regulated.
You are more than capable of breastfeeding your precious new baby and you should start with skin to skin. In times of hardships, I encourage you to do what you have planned to do for your child or children. Remember that knowledge is power and I want you to feel comfortable in starting your journey of motherhood off right!
My first C- Section I remember how traumatic it was. My doctor was nothing short of horrible and maybe it was because I was " So young". Nevertheless, I was an adult and I wanted to breastfeed so badly. I was discourage in the hospital as a young black mom and I want you to know that you can do it.
