Smashing this pump meant so many things. It meant I was free. It meant my babies were no longer babies. It meant an end from the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. It meant I decided to do something and I stuck to it until the end. It was an emotional release of every hurtful word, exchanged glance, every doctor, nurse and person who told me that I couldn’t do it.

I would pump and bringbottles,so I wouldn't have tonurse,and I deeply regret that.”
