Ep. 46: Melissa Suffield talks about exclusively pumping

Melissa Suffield

Content creator and actress Melissa Suffield is our special guest on the boobingit podcast this week.

Mother of one Melissa regular shares her family life and motherhood journey on her hugely successful social media page The Confident Mama.

In this episode Melissa talks to us about exclusively pumping milk for her son for the first year of his life and what led her to do this.

During the conversation we speak about the lack of information around exclusively pumping in the UK, how it’s not talked about or seen as the ‘done thing’. She explains: I had a second hand breast pump in case I needed it and this was my lifeline. But no one talked to me about pumping, and there was no information on the NHS – or anywhere else. Because people don’t want you do that, they don’t want you to be pumping exclusively. They want you to be nursing.”
