S1. E. 12 Rachel Hough: Formula vs. Nursing vs. Donation

I remember throughout Rachel’s pregnancy discussing whether she would nurse her baby or give her a bottle with formula. In her feisty, “true-to-Rachel” sense she said, “I don’t see why I would pay for formula when I can nurse for free”. I understood what she meant. After the arrival of her beautiful, precious daughter, she struggled to cope with the sleep deprivation. Ultimately, this led to the decision to give her baby formula, to prioritize her mental health.
