Maybe you’ve just started your journey to becoming an IBCLC, or perhaps you’re a seasoned expert. Or maybe you’re a parent, looking for resources to help you raise a breastfed child. We’re all learning and growing, every day. Yet, you might not know how to find the free breastfeeding resources that I have to offer.
Born to Be Breastfed Podcast
Not familiar with a podcast? It’s like a radio show. Each Monday, I release a new episode of Born to Be Breastfed. The show’s aim is to empower parents to overcome the barriers that keep them from beginning or continuing to breastfeed.
Each episode is a little different. I have had some incredible guests. You’ll recognize names like Nils Bergman, Lori Feldman-Winter, and Jennifer Thomas. Together we discuss a variety of topics such as hospital practices, milk supply, medications, returning to work, milk storage options, and more. (And we have Dr. James McKenna coming in January!)
But I’ve had several guests you might not have heard of, yet they bring an interesting perspective. Ciera Devine tells us her story of breastfeeding after having breast cancer. Stephanie Brown, IBCLC, helped us to understand how to be more inclusive of the LGBTQIA community in healthcare. Dietitian Dr. Allison Childress and Chef Aurora Satler, authors of The Ultimate New Mom’s Cookbook, A Complete Food and Nutrition Resource for Expectant Mothers, Babies, and Toddlers, gave us practical tips to save you prep time and still get a delicious, nutritious meal on the table in less than 30 minutes that works for the whole family. You’ll want to take advantage of these free breastfeeding resources!
Sometimes, I do the show myself. In a recent episode, I gave dozens of tips for breastfeeding mothers who are doing air travel with a baby.
You can listen any time, 24/7. Episodes can be streamed, or downloaded to your podcast player to listen to offline.
