After almost 24 hours of labour, my baby girl arrived. We were obviously overjoyed. I was exhausted but my baby was wailing away, obviously hungry.  I was all ready to feed her knowing how hungry she must be. Unfortunately, that wasn’t on the cards for me just yet – I wasn’t lactating. Thus began the ordeal. Thankfully for me, I had a really good lactation specialist attached to the hospital where I had my baby.
