With 63% responding that the start of breastfeeding was either tough or painful (probably both for many, as it was for me!), it's no wonder so many women give up. There really needs to be an increase in lactation support, ideally covered 100% by health insurance. I know I would have loved in-home support, but wasn't willing to pay the $200-$300 per visit that my midwife told me it would cost. Luckily Kenzo and I hung in there and everything resolved itself eventually!
