The recently married, first-time mum received a flurry of positive messages and advice on her post, including a note from one woman who wrote, "Not a mum yet, but read a good chunk of the responses and took notes for the future."

Married at First Sight's Zoe Hendrix has penned an honest message about breastfeeding daughter Harper-Rose, who was born in November. "It took me a good two weeks to get the hang of breastfeeding. Like a new pair of shoes my boobs had to be worn in boot camp style! (Ouch!)😖 Both Harper & I had to learn the art of attachment and it wasn't easy. I had days I wanted to give up. Thank god for the nipple shield which was a godsend when I needed in those early days when my nips resembled a crime scene 😳. (Highly recommend!) And now when I feed my baby, I marvel at the perfect nourishment my body producers and I am so grateful and honoured I can breastfeed her, especially acknowledging it can be for many a horrible ordeal for a myriad of reasons." Finishing with a message of love for the mums out there, Zoe wrote: "Our bodies are extraordinary ladies we must never forget or be made to feel we are doing anything but what our breasts were created to do."
