Getting real for National Breastfeeding Month

Mamas, it’s about time we got real – #BreastBeReal, in fact.

There’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ breastfeeding journey – it’s a mix of love, work, and (sometimes) leaking.

So, for National Breastfeeding Month, we're shining a spotlight on all the ups, downs, and downright hilarious moments that come with feeding.

Honoring Black Breastfeeding Week

Starting August 25th, we will be honoring (and celebrating) Black Breastfeeding Week.

This year’s theme is ‘Revive, Reclaim, Restore’, and this serves a powerful purpose – especially when we consider how little support Black breastfeeding moms and parents receive. Black mothers have the lowest rate of breastfeeding in the country, with many factors contributing towards this immense challenge, including pressure to return back to work too soon, systemic interference, and racism.

Working to elevate the voices of Black mothers

For any progress to be made, we need to take action and keep the conversation going. That's why we're helping shine a light on the crisis of Black maternity and reproductive health this month.

We have partnered with a number of organizations and advocates to bring you digital events across the week.

Kicking off with an IG LIVE on August 25th: 'The importance of doulas and Black breastfeeding', we have also teamed up with Mama Glow to bring to life a webinar in honor of the initiative.
