August 25th - 31st is Black Breastfeeding Week. 2018 is the sixth year that Black families have been celebrated and supported with a week dedicated to breast/chestfeeding in the Black community.
Childbirth professionals have many opportunities to help Black families and Black lactation consultants. Today's blog offers some suggestions on action steps you can take now. Join us in supporting Black Breastfeeding Week 2017.
In honor of Black Breastfeeding Week, we share two stories written by Black mothers who shared their breastfeeding experience. Their stories are different but their voice and their message is equally important. Consider how you can help and support families of color to increase breastfeeding rates
Today I would like to share some of my favorite online resources for the birth professional, doula, childbirth educator, lactation consultant, midwife, L&D nurse or physician. These are valuable resources that I use during breastfeeding class, with birth doula clients and share with professionals.
