We have talked about this before - what if they told you that you would never walk again, that you would need crutches or a wheelchair for the rest of your life? And what if, with some help, some work and lots of support you found out you could have walked, if they just hadn't given up on you?

We usually compare this to breastfeeding, what if you were told that you could not breastfeed, that you may as well give up, and just use formula? And what if, with some help, some work and lots of support you found out you could have breastfed, if they just hadn't given up on you... or your baby?

Now obviously there are some sitiuations were formula is the only course left, starving the baby is NEVER an option. But for others, it would be really great if someone just believed in them and gave them the support they needed to succeed.

I was thinking about all this when I came across this video this morning!
