Breastfeeding Outside the Box

We are proud to present a series of podcasts for parents Breastfeeding Outside the Box, where we aim to support the nourishing and nurturing of babies in exceptional families - families who historically have not received the help and support they need and deserve. Our exceptional families include adoptive, intended, and foster families; gender and sexual minorities; families with special needs babies; parents who have had breast surgery; mothers with IGT or low milk production for other reasons; exclusively pumping mothers; and more.

Hearing from Bridget and her husband Shawn will blow you away.  This incredible couple shares their touching journey through a cancer diagnosis during pregnancy, cancer treatments that did not allow mom to breastfeed, and a baby who would not accept his wet nurses or a bottle, Together this mother, father and baby discovered a solution that helped heal them all. Finger-feeding ended up not only being a way for this couple to nourish their baby, but a way to nurse their baby when traditional nursing was not available.  No milk production required.  No breasts required.  Just a finger, a feeding device, and love.

We are so thrilled to have the wonderful Diana West on Breastfeeding Outside the Box.  Through her writing, speaking, and individual work with breastfeeding families, Diana has opened the doors to breastfeeding for so many parents, starting with mothers breastfeeding after breast reduction surgery.  Her influence then grew to supporting mothers with low milk production for various reasons.  And she is now expanding the understanding and support for breastfeeding/chestfeeding for the transgender community.
