The marvelous Kate McDevitt and her son Lincoln (19 months). Kate was in a really dark place in her life and was addicted to drugs when she conceived her son. The moment she knew she was pregnant she stopped everything and began to work towards getting her life back on track. She says that Lincoln saved her and she's so grateful to have him. Kate had a very healthy pregnancy and knew that she wanted to have an unmedicated birth. She would have loved to have a home birth but knew it wasn't in the cards for her so she found a midwife who would support her. Lincoln was born without complication and Kate says the nurses were very supportive of her initiating breastfeeding. They have a wonderful breastfeeding relationship today. Kate has been doing very well with her addiction as well. She has had one relapse but says it was brief and she's doing her best to surround herself with positive people and embrace her new life. "I want women to know that you can be a good mother even if you have a bad past".
