I had a blast talking with SonJoria Sydnor and Denecia Harrell about support for breastfeeding families of color in the St. Louis area and beyond. They talked about the needs around breastfeeding for families of color and how they provide the specific support that is needed. Whether it is through group meetings, home visits, texts, or social media I AM: Breastfeeding is there for breastfeeding families of color in St. Louis. You can read the rest of our show notes here.
A little something new with Dr. Nice! We've talked with in the past with Dr. Nice mostly about galactogogues: medications, herbs, and foods for promoting milk production. This time we pick his brain about medications the nursing parent may take for herself rather than her milk production. This includes medications for the nursing parent's health and for her recreation ... such as alcohol and marijuana. See more information on our show notes at: www.SweetPeaBreastfeeding.com/
