This blog is about childbirth and breastfeeding– the pleasures, the challenges, the research and the controversies.   I teach prenatal breastfeeding classes and am a post partum doula and have been following breastfeeding research and best practices since the birth of my eldest son in 2003.  There are so many barriers that can make breastfeeding challenging– cultural, social, institutional.. My goal is to  facilitate moms who want to breastfeed to do so.  More information on my doula and teaching services can be found at  http://www.smoothbeginnings.com and http://www.childbearing.org (under instructors).
