I became part of the statistics that show that less than 40 per cent of mothers breast-feed after six weeks, even though numerous tests have shown that breast milk is best.
The biggest problem is that breast-feeding can chain a new mum to her home, making her a virtual prisoner.
Those first weeks, when the partner has gone back to work and the flow of visitors has slowed can be seriously lonely and depressing.

Having a feeling of opposition, distaste, or aversion; strongly disinclined: investors who are averse to taking risks. to the thought of it in public, just don't look.
