EthanbfcloseupBreastmilk has been shown to be the optimal nutrition for human babies. There is a cultural movement in the United States to make breastfeeding the norm in infant feeding once again. Many times, when the discussion about breastfeeding includes Black women in America, it focuses on why we don’t do it and how to encourage us to do it. Unfortunately, the discussion tends to miss the fact that there are many Black women who have breastfed and currently do breastfeed their babies. Black Women Do Breastfeed strives to make visible those Black women who do breastfeed. We also hope that by sharing our stories we can support, encourage and inspire other women who want to breastfeed their children.
