The stunning Ramona Mancha with her daughter Annie Mancha-Ramirez and grand-daughter Lux Anorah (7 months). Ramona says that in her day, natural birth and breastfeeding weren't really options for her. She was a single mom her whole life and after delivering Ramona via cesarean, did the same for her brother years later and didn't breastfeed either time.
Annie chose to have a completely natural birth and through 22 hours of labor of 2 hours of pushing was able to achieve her goal. She is also breastfeeding even though Lux has a severe lip tie she's had to work through with the help up lactation consultants. She is the first in her whole family to birth naturally and breastfeed.
Annie has always had a very positive self image and even though she has a more difficult time adjusting to her new body postpartum is working to love her body now as she did before. Ramona has always struggled with her physical self. After being in raised in home where women were subordinate to men, she's felt that if she isn't perfect, she needs to do more. She is fit and healthy and exercises multiple times a week but still struggles with loving herself. Yet through her role as mother and grandmother, she shines with tremendous love and dedication. Such a joy to work with these three today.
