Madison felt prepared for postpartum, but had a few unexpected challenges to overcome along the way. After a precipitous birth, her baby wasn’t getting the milk he needed, and she soon realized that she had low milk supply. The sleep deprivation she experienced for the first six months was detrimental to her mental health, and she developed postpartum rage. Once she was able to get some sleep, she felt like she was back to herself. She also shares the sweet moments of the first 8 months with her baby.
