- Bangs Garcia is a breastfeeding advocate
- She has struggled with breastfeeding for quite some time
- The most horrifying was when she was rushed to the hospital after pumping breastmilk for 2 hours
Bangs Garcia recounted the struggles she faced as a new breastfeeding mother.
She initially thought that she wouldn't be able to do it but she was eventually able to do it.
In PEP's report, Bangs stated that breastfeeding doesn't come naturally to all moms.
She remembers the time that she pumped manually because she was no longer producing enough milk.
After two hours of pumping, she was then rushed to the hospital.
"I was seriously burnt-out. It had caused me a great deal of distress, I weeped my heart out thinking that I’m a bad mum for not being able to produce much milk for her.
"The thought of feeding Amelia with formula was dreadful for me to accept, but seeing her sob from hunger was agonizing so I had to give in.
"I tried to manually pump whilst watching breastfeeding videos on YouTube to get tips in desperation after two days of getting discharged from the hospital.
"Unfortunately, I’ve only gotten 10ml milk for straight 2 hours of pumping and it had caused me the most horrible spasm of my life!" said Bangs.
Because of this, Bangs had to feed Amelia with formula milk. She realized that mixed feeding, albeit she only produces a little amount of breastmilk, does not make her less of a mom.
The 30-year-old actress also said that she drinks a lot of fluids and that she also takes supplements to help her with her milk supply.
Bangs Garcia is a Filipina actress who used to do sexy roles in films.
She got married and now has baby Amelia, which had her focusing on family life.
The actress is currently living in the UK with her husband.
