Interview with Dr. Carrie Miller
“The nurse came in and she said it’s time to feed your baby. She helped the baby to latch onto my breast and at that moment in time, it was just pure magic knowing that I had the ability to feed my baby and nourish, and I was, as a birthing parent, I was able to take on that role and responsibility. For me it started with the act of a caregiver, promoting and empowering me to have the ability to feed and nourish my baby.” – Dr, Carrie Miller
