August - National Breastfeeding Awareness Month

Since 1991, August 1st to August 7th is World Breastfeeding Week. In 2011, the United States Breastfeeding Commitee deemed the month of August National Breastfeeding Awareness Month.

 

This month, I intend to share important information about breastfeeding including:

  • statistical evidence on rate of women breastfeeding,

  • complications associated with breastfeeding and how to approach them*,

  • breastfeeding tips* and advice from educators and mothers,

  • herbal remedies and nutrition information to support healthy milk supply*.

*My advice should never replace that of a healthcare professional such as a midwife, nurse practitioner, or doctor. Always seek medical advice before adopting any new nutrition, supplement, or exercise regimen.

 

This first post, however, is dedicated to beautiful breastfeeding art I have come across online. For now, scroll and enjoy these wonderful pieces of creation I have compiled and revel in the wonder that the female body is.

For all the mommas, those to be and those that are: You are beautiful. Your body is strong. Your heart is pure. You are loved. And you are always supported.


Much Love,
