Mindy waited her whole life to become a mom. “If someone asked me what I wanted most out of life, it would be, to become a mom.” For her first child, Mindy struggled at first to become pregnant, but for her second, it came so easily.

Your baby’s hungry, your baby is crying... your baby is ready to eat! And you’re in public. You’re around strangers. What do you do? Feed your baby, and don’t give a second thought to anything else.
