I love the Michelle Obama story. I am not surprised at her tenacity! I have a lactation practice and in my work that I do in the community I have encountered African American women that don’t know about many of the benefits of breastfeeding. The education piece is missing! given half of a chance, I make sure that I deliver that education. I am going to share Michelle Obama’s experience.
My colleague and I established a lactation private room at work! All we had to do was ask!
