Sarah and her husband celebrated two milestones this summer: their second anniversary and the birth of their first child. She is looking forward to breastfeeding and motherhood and feels that breastfeeding will be the first way she’ll be able to show her baby how much she truly loves him. She has also prepared for breastfeeding by reading and researching but understands that it won’t be easy. Her husband is incredibley supportive and realizes that is best for the baby as well. She also has a great support system outside of her partner as her mother (who breastfed Sarah), sister, and mother-in-law all support her decision to breastfeed. In her own words, “I am eager, anxious, nervous, and exciting to this baby to my breast!”.
Before becoming a mother, Sarah worked as a restaurant manager at OLiVES in Union Square, New York City and her husband works as both a doctor and an assistant professor of medicine. She is 30 years old and lives in New York City. Sarah met her husband, Jonathan at a dinner party thrown by a mutual friend, it wasn't long before they became inseparable. They had a quick courtship – after meeting in February they were married by August. A year and a half later Sarah learned she was pregnant and decided to leave her beloved position at OLiVES for the duration of the pregnancy and the beginning life as a mother. She is filled with eager anticipation to begin this next stage of her life.
