Motherhood is an incredibly rewarding experience for women. It has the potential to enrich our lives, build deep connections, and help us develop multi-faceted skills. However, in our culture, motherhood can also be a time of increased social isolation and stress.

Devastated by her loss, as any mother would be, Jillian shared her story with the Fed is Best Foundation, an organization founded to prevent newborn starvation due to insufficient exclusive breastfeeding. Jillian’s most poignant statement is: One bottle (of formula) may have saved my baby’s life.
