“Born to Be Breastfed” a Podcast to Empower Parents and Educate Professionals

Marie Biancuzzo, host of "Born to Be Breastfed"

In September 2013, I began hosting “Born to be Breastfed” on VoiceAmerica. A new episode is broadcast online every Monday at 6 p.m. ET. But you don’t need to tune in live – you can listen anytime, anywhere! “Born to be Breastfed” podcasts are available completely FREE. In each one hour weekly episode, I aim to bust through the myths and clarify the facts about breastfeeding and beyond!

If you’re new to “Born to Be Breastfed,” here are some tips to get you started:

What is a podcast?

Not familiar with a podcast? It’s like a radio show. Each episode is different and I offer a variety of topics with a diverse group of guests. I’ve had notable guests like Dr. James McKenna and Nils Bergman. I also give practical tips like traveling with infants, human milk donation, and health and wellness.

If you’re planning to take the IBLCE™Exam, be sure to listen to a recent episode on exam requirements and guidelines.

Practical tips

Earbuds may be good when you’re on the go, but if you want to listen to podcasts while at home, speakers are the answer. Don’t have an external speaker? A low-tech trick to amplify the sound from your phone is to place it in a bowl or mug speaker-side down.

Keep episodes of particular interest in your downloads list to listen to again as needed, whether in part or in entirety. This is particularly helpful for exam prep episodes.
