Meet the mom behind Rachel’s Remedy.
I made the decision to breastfeed almost as soon as I found out I was pregnant with my first son. I’ve always found breastfeeding to be a beautiful, natural process, and when I started learning about the nutritional benefits to my child, it was a no-brainer. Even as a busy working mom, I was determined to breastfeed for as long as I could.
When the time actually came, it was more amazing and magical than I ever imagined. I will never forget the overwhelming love and purpose I felt when we stared into each other’s eyes (sounds so corny but it’s true!).
However, as most women do, I also experienced discomfort and pain, and eventually had clogged ducts and mastitis. My doctor recommended I hold warm, wet washcloths (or diapers!) in place for 20-minute intervals numerous times per day. It was impractical and mostly impossible. While holding the washcloths in place, I was unable to wear clothes because they got wet, I was unable to care for my children, work or perform any function that required both hands. Not to mention, the washcloths needed constant reheating.
I knew there had to be a better way — a way that offers breastfeeding moms the comfort and freedom they need and deserve. I put my career as a lawyer on the side and devoted my professional life to finding a solution that helps moms nurse more comfortably and conveniently while enjoying the freedom to take care of all those other things moms need to do.
That’s when I created Rachel’s Remedy Breastfeeding Relief Packs.
Now you can enjoy more of the beautiful bonding with your baby and less of the discomfort.
