Even When There's a Will, There's Not Always a Way

Breastmilk featured both couples who we were surprised to see breastfeeding (including one mom who didn't give birth to her baby but was able to force lactation) and those who viewed it as the only option, then were dismayed to discover that it didn't work for them.

For women who desperately want to be able to breastfeed their children, finding out that it's impossible stirs up a wide range of emotions — guilt, failure, and inadequacy among them.

One mom featured in the film who fit this category even said that she felt obligated to explain herself to other women when she took out a bottle of formula.
