The lovely Shannon Connor with her daughter Onyx (5 months). Shannon's pregnancy was a surprise, and while it was very healthy physically, she struggled emotionally with feeling stable enough to accept her daughter into her life. She knew immediately that she was here for good but spent a lot of time and energy worrying about being able to provide for her. Her birth was beautiful, empowering and without complication. Her breastfeeding relationship has been wonderful as well. Shannon wants to encourage other young mothers that even if you have worries, it will all be okay, you'll make it work, and the fact that you get to be a mother to your beautiful child is a beautiful thing.
