Becca didn't give up. When breastfeeding got off to a tough start and her milk production dwindled, she knew in her heart it wasn't too late. With time, hard work, and determination Becca brought her milk back after she had lost it -a process called relactation. She used a breast pump, medications, herbs, and the help of a myriad of local professionals. And one pump at a time, one ounce at a time, she eventually built her milk production up to a full supply.

If you are regularly using a breast pump to provide milk for your baby, this podcast episode is a must!
