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.

Alyssa and Hope get real!  Being a new parent isn't always the blissful joy we might see on holiday cards.  It can be really tough times, as well as wonderful times.  We suggest that the balance lies in self-care.  It can be so difficult to care for ourselves as new parents, and we haven't always done the best job of it ourselves. We hope our stories and discussion will support you and propel you into a holiday season and new year of simple joys and caring for yourself just as well as you already do for your precious little ones.
