Should I encourage a friend to BF?

I have a friend due to deliver her first baby in just a few weeks...She is undecided about BFing and says it will take some of the pressure off of "just her" if she uses formula so others can help with bottles. I know this is true.
I remember those difficult and very tiring beginning weeks/months of BFing when people would say, "If you weren't BFing I could give him a bottle during the night and you could sleep!!"

Is it my place to gently try and encourage her to BF or should I just let her make her own decision?

I am very committed and convinced about breastfeeding and would love some tips from others who may have encountered a similiar situation.
