“It has been beyond hard and sometimes painful making sure the baby gets as much of my milk as possible with long days on set. And I’ve wept on this watching the few drops add up to less than a feed meaning we have to top up with formula but I am still determined to push on with the help of my trusted friend,” said Relebogile Mabotja.
